ANAHEIM, Calif. — Ervin Santana followed up his no-hitter with an eight-hitter and the Los Angeles Angels got home runs from Torii Hunter and rookie Mark Trumbo on Tuesday night in a 4-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

Santana’s bid to duplicate Johnny Vander Meer’s feat of back-to-back no-hitters in 1938 with the Cincinnati Reds ended in the second inning when Jason Kubel lined a leadoff single to right field on Santana’s 20th pitch.

Santana (7-8) struck out six and walked two in his 193rd career start, posting consecutive complete games for the first time in the big leagues on the heels of his 3-1 gem last Wednesday at Cleveland. He tied a season high with 121 pitches and worked with runners on base in every inning but the seventh.
