Liriano Tosses No-Hitter
by

Minnesota Twins pitcher Francisco Liriano no-hit the Chicago White Sox tonight en route to a 1-0 victory.

Liriano has pitched with the Twins since the end of the 2005 season. The no-hitter marked both Liriano’s first big league complete game and shutout in his 95th career start.

Prior to this start, Liriano had been struggling with a 1-4 record and an astronomical 9.13 ERA and was on the verge of losing his spot in the starting rotation. Even tonight his control was not pinpoint as he walked six batters.

Nonetheless, Liriano’s no-no gives the Twins something to cheer about. The Twins, who have won the AL Central Division six times in the past nine seasons, entered tonight’s game with the worst record in Major League Baseball at 9-18. Well, no more. With tonight’s triumph, the White Sox now have the worst record in MLB as they have lost 16 of their last 20 games.

It should be noted that the losing pitcher was Edwin Jackson. Last season, Jackson tossed a no-hitter when he was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks against the Tampa Bay Rays. In that performance, Jackson walked eight batters.
