Let’s Meet Fausto Carmona

Yesterday Fausto got his 5th straight win this season. Here’s a quick recap of the game-

A CLOSER LOOK

• Summary: With a little help from his friends at the plate, Indians phenom Fausto Carmona outpitched the Twins’ Johan Santana for the second time this season and earned the Tribe a 2-0 series-sweeping win in Cleveland.

• Hero: Carmona breezed through the Twins lineup with an impressive complete game four-hit shutout to log his fifth straight win of the young season.

• Turning point: With the score deadlocked at zero and both pitchers seemingly in control, Victor Martinez led-off the seventh with a homer into the left-field bleachers and Ryan Garko followed suit two pitches later to provide Carmona and the Indians all the runs they’d need for the win.

• Figure this: With his complete game shutout Thursday, the 23-year-old Carmona has now thrown 15 consecutive innings of scoreless baseball.

• Figure this II: Santana allowed two runs and just four hits in seven innings, the 100th straight start in which he has pitched at least five innings. His100-start streak of going at least five innings is the fourth longest such run in the past 50 years. Only Curt Schilling (147), David Cone (145) and Bob Gibson (112) have been more consistent.

Now, let’s meet this Indians phenom-
