Johan Santana Region: #5 vs. #12

5. Santana Shuts Down Yankees in ALDS in 2004

The whole game is on YouTube if you want to watch it, though it's kind of a tease given the Yankees have beat the Twins in 947 consecutive games since.  Johan just completely shut down the Yankee lineup, allowing just 10 baserunners in 7 innings.  Rincon and Nathan continued to shut them down after that.

Mussina allowed even fewer baserunners than Johan did, but he didn't spread them out as nicely.  Jacque Jones also hit a dinger off him.

Anyway, Santana was awesome.

12. Jacque Jones Breaks Up Freddy Garcia's No-Hitter

Both moments today involve Santana giving up no runs and Jacque Jones hitting a homer.  I guess you have to figure out which one was better!
