Francisco Liriano Blacks Out On The White Sox, Throws No-Hitter

By | 11 Comments

<a href=""> Picking up where the MLB pitcher magic of 2010 left off, Francisco Liriano single-handedly (and armed) shut down the Chicago White Sox. 123 pitches, two strike-outs and one close call later, Liriano has the first no-hitter of 2011 in the name of Minnesota. He survived a rocky ninth inning that began when Brent Morel grounded to shortstop and Matt Tolbert made a one-hop throw that first baseman Justin Morneau scooped. Juan Pierre walked and Alexei Ramirez popped to shortstop. ''I can't explain it. I feel so nervous and so happy right now,'' Liriano said. ''I can't explain my feeling right now.'' [Fox Sports] After ninety-five starts, Lirano never went the distance for an entire game. His first opportunity to close and he shuts it down...down...down with the power of the shoulder. Let the floodgates for the Cy Young hopefuls open and rain down with vengeance. No home plate will be safe until October. <a href="">Liriano Throws No-Hitter Vs. White Sox [Fox Sports]</a>.
