2010 – Carlos Santana makes his Major League debut and goes 0-for-3 in a 7-2 win by the Indians over the Washington Nationals.

Batting third and taking over the roster spot of the optioned Lou Marson, Santana grounded into a fielder’s choice in the first and grounded out to first in the third. He reached base for the first time in his Cleveland career with a fourth inning walk off of Luis Atilano, but would be stranded at first on a foul out by Russell Branyan and a strikeout from Austin Kearns. He again grounded into a fielder’s choice with two on and one out in the sixth in his final at bat of the game.

Santana would make up for the 0-fer at the plate the very next day, when he would get his first two career hits, a two-run double in the second and a solo homer to lead off the fourth inning off of former Indians first round pick J.D. Martin.
