Monday’s pitching matchup will feature right hander Ervin Santana going for the LA Angels as he goes head to head with Roy Oswalt of the Texas Rangers. Santana is having miserable 2012 campaign as the hurler sits with an ERA of 6 and a record of 4-10. Team record in Santana’s 19 starts this year is just 5-14. Over his past three starts Santana has given up 16 earned runs with 20 hits working just nine innings. In two of those starts Santana has been unable to pitch past the second inning. Owsalt is fit enough to take the mound tonight for Texas after missing his scheduled start a week ago with stiffness in his back. He enters play off two good outings as he allowed just one earned run each in starts against Minnesota and last time out on July 17th to Oakland working 6 1/3rd innings. On the year Oswalt is 3-1 with an ERA of 5.22 after a shaky beginning to his 2012 campaign. The Rangers right hander has pitched better at home with an ERA of 3.44 compared to over eight on the highway.
