Despite recording eight strikeouts, Ervin Santana was tagged for six runs in 6 1/3 innings by the Rockies on Thursday.

It was just Santana's second career start at Coors Field, but both have produced ugly lines (he gave up seven runs in 5 2/3 innings there two years ago). Today's outing would have been a quality start had he been removed after six, but his pitch count was so low that the Braves had no intention of doing so. He gave up three runs while retiring just one batter in the seventh. Despite some recent struggles, Santana should be kept active in mixed leagues for his upcoming home start against the Phils.
