Santana - Since July 1, 2004

W L ERA H/9 BB/9 K/9 HR/9 K/BB vs. White Sox 9 2 1.43 5.5 1.5 9.8 .82 6.4 vs. rest of MLB 36 12 2.76 6.7 1.9 9.8 .81 5.1
This will be Santana's 13th start against the Sox in the last 2.5 seasons. He has not started more than 10 games against any other team in baseball during that span, facing the Royals and Indians 9 times a piece.

During his run of dominance, Santana has pitched at least 6 innings in each of his 12 starts against the Sox, with 12 quality starts. He hasn't allowed more than 3 runs in any start, and he's only done that once in a victory. (The Royals have scored 4, 4, and 5 runs against him the last three times they've faced him.)
