Twins pitcher Francisco Liriano, who has been awful this season up until last night, no-hit the White Sox in a 1-0 complete game win. The no-hitter brings Liriano's ERA to under 7.00 on the season and his record improves to 2-4.
Liriano was due for one of these starts. He's been blowing up my fantasy team all year. Interesting fact from last night's game: it was just the 5th 1-0 no-hitter in the past 20 years. Edwin Jackson, the losing pitcher in last night's game despite giving up just 1 run in 8 innings, had one of the other ones last season.
LoL, ironic Jackson was pitching for the opposing team in this game. I remember all the talk about Jackson's ugly as it gets no-hitter last season and it's just funny how Liriano's was almost as ugly this time around.
On a side note, the Twins have been horrible this season and I don't know where that's coming from. Perhaps this can help get them going.
to bad the ump blew the call on a beckham single when the tag was off by atleast a foot. its better to be on liriano's side of a nono then what happend to galaraga last yearliriano is still a slightly over average pitcher
Very true. Liriano pitched a no-hitter and it wasn't even the top pitching performance in the American League last week. There have been half a dozen pitchers take no-hitters into the 7th inning in the past 7 days. Looks like we're going to have back-to-back Year(s) of the Pitcher.
