Ervin Santana doesn't hit much, but when he does, he crushes 3-run doubles against the San Francisco Giants.

Santana's bases-clearing double gave the Twin a 4-0 lead against the Giants and the right-hander improved to 8-2 on the season in Minnesota's 4-0 win. Only five other pitchers have at least eight wins this season.

Game two between the Twins and Giants is set for 3:05 p.m. on Saturday, Jose Berrios will start for Minnesota.
