Angels’ Santana throws first no-hitter

No, not that Santana.

The Angels’ Ervin Santana — as opposed to the Mets’ rehabbing Johan Santana — threw the first no-hitter of his career in a 3-1 win over the Indians yesterday.

Santana also struck out 10 in the outing. He allowed just two baserunners, including the first batter of the game. Ezequiel Carrera reached first on a throwing error by Erick Aybar, stole second and would eventually score on a wild pitch.

After that, Santana had just one walk — in the eighth inning.

Santana improved to 6-8 in what has been an inconsistent season for the right hander.

Santana’s no-hitter was already the third this season, joining Justin Verlander and fellow Dominican Republic native Francisco Liriano.

It was also the first no-hitter with a run scored since 1993.
