Sanmartin (1-0) yielded one run on five hits and a walk over 5.2 innings Monday, striking out five and earning a win over the Pirates.
Sanmartin tossed 60-of-93 pitches for strikes and kept the Pirates scoreless through the first four innings. The only damage against him came in the fifth when Anthony Alford scored on a wild pitch. It was his first career MLB start after posting a 3.94 ERA and an 89:23 K:BB with Triple-A Louisville this season. The 25-year-old southpaw could be in line for another start against the Pirates this weekend in Pittsburgh.
