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
That would have been a fielder's choice and not a hit had it been called correctly.
Justin Verlander just pitched his 2nd career no-hitter today. These feats are seemingly becoming much less rare every year.
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.
anibal sanchez has took 1 8 2/3 innings and another 7 innings he'll get another no hitter this season. I think another guy that could do it is cj wilson both are similar and underrated pitchers.

If you were a MLB hitter and were ahead in the count 3-0, would you swing?It surprises me how hard hitters work to get ahead in the count, then when they get the optimal count to swing on, they keep the bat on their shoulder and give the pitcher a chance to get back into the AB.

Which streak will be broken first?The Chicago Cubs haven't won a World series since 1908, or the San Diego Padres have never had a pitcher throw a no-hitter. Which has a better chance of being broken?

The Giants and 49ers were both underdogs this past weekend, and both came away with a win. Now they'll play each other for the right to advance to the Super Bowl. Who do you think will win this matchup?
