Indians Santana's blasts piece of cake in Tribe's win

Quote:
If birthday cards start showing up inside Carlos Santana's locker on a daily basis, it will not be a surprise. Having fans serenade the Indians catcher with a birthday song prior to his plate appearances might not be a bad idea, either.

There is something about becoming a little older that does wonders for Santana's swing.

On Sunday afternoon, Santana celebrated his big day by providing Cleveland with a gift: its first victory of the 2012 season. The Indians catcher slugged a pair of home runs to power the offense, supporting a strong performance from veteran sinkerballer Derek Lowe and leading the way in a 4-3 win over the Blue Jays at Progressive Field.

"Happy birthday, Carlos Santana," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "I wish it was that easy for everybody."

This hardly seems like a one-time anomaly, though.

Over the past four years, Santana has abused an ample number of baseballs on the day he blows out the candles. The catcher has hit .556 (10-for-18) with five home runs and 13 RBIs combined on his last four birthdays. That includes his first birthday in the big leagues last season, as well as a pair of celebratory showings in the Minors.

Yes, I did. He can really launch em. The amazing part is that I picked him up off of waivers undrafted.

One thing is for sure: he may not hit .300 but the dude can crank them.
