Santana gave up six runs -- five of them earned -- on eight hits while walking four and striking out five through five innings in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Santana still owns an attractive 14-8 record after this one, despite the fact he's only grabbed one win in his last four starts. Perhaps somewhat alarming, however, is that he's walked four batters in two of his last three appearances, and has posted a 20:46 BB:K since his 11-K shutout gem against the Padres on July 28. Nonetheless, Santana will take on the very same Nationals in his next start Monday, this time at home.

Santana (11-6, 3.69 ERA) only made one serious mistake in the contest - a three-run home run off the bat of Anthony Rendon - and having thrown just 82 pitches (54 for strikes) through six frames would have likely worked deeper into the game had it not been delayed by rain for 71 minutes.
