Twins Liriano Pitches No-Hitter

Francisco Liriano throws the first no-hitter of the year, the seventh no-hitter in Minnesota Twins history, and his first career complete game. Liriano’s pitching jewel helped the Twins defeat the White Sox in Chicago 1-0. Here is more from the AP and espn.com, followed by more blogging from Scott.

Liriano (2-4) walked six and struck out two, throwing 123 pitches in the 95th major league start for the 27-year-old left-hander.

“I can’t explain it. I feel so nervous and so happy right now,” Liriano said. “I can’t explain my feeling right now.”

Liriano throws no-hitter

It would be hard for anyone not to be happy for Liriano. The young man was fantastic in 2006, but his violent delivery led to serious arm problems. He didn’t play at all in 2007 due to injuries, and was arguably a below average MLB pitcher the last 3 seasons. However, tonight he was the best MLB had to offer, throwing the first no-hitter of the season. Regardless of how the rest of Liriano’s season unfolds, no one can take away his spot in MLB history.
