Player Notes
Francisco Liriano was near-unhittable in a 9-1 win over the Mets on Sunday, striking out 12 and allowing one run in six innings.

Advice: Perhaps the only downside of striking out 12 batters is that it pumps up the pitch count. Indeed, Liriano had thrown 112 pitches by the time he exited the game after six, but these are just minor quibbles. Liriano was locked in from the word "go" and the only run to touch the plate came on a Wilmer Flores RBI single in the fifth inning. Flores was the only Mets regular Liriano failed to strike out. The non-regular? Pitcher Jon Niese, who went 1-for-2 without a whiff. Strange times, strange times. Liriano now boasts a 3.86 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 64/23 K/BB ratio in 53 2/3 innings. Those numbers are skewed slightly high by a two-inning, seven-run debacle against the Twins in Liriano's last start. He's having a very good season. We'll see if he can strike out his opposing number when he takes to the road against the Padres in his next outing.

Francisco Liriano was hammered by his former team, serving up seven runs in two innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Twins.

Advice: The Twins exploded for six runs in the second inning, polished off with a two-run Trevor Plouffe home run. Liriano had also been taken yard by Brian Dozier in the first. The lefty gave up five hits and a pair of walks while striking out two on the evening. Though Liriano has mostly been stellar this season, his ERA is up to 4.15 with a 1.11 WHIP and a 52/21 K/BB ratio in 47 2/3 innings. He'll try to bounce back in a home start versus the struggling Marlins.
