Sam:Francisco Liriano is back, and hopefully back for good. He is 3-0 in his last three starts since being called up from Triple-A. So far this year, Liriano is 3-3, with a 4.97 ERA. He also has 22 strikeouts. He has looked brilliant in his last three starts, with a 1.45 ERA, 18.2 innings pitched, and fifteen strikeouts, according to the Minnesota Twins official website. In his last game, he pitched seven scoreless innings, with five strikeouts, and allowing only two hits.
Liriano fell behind 16 of the 25 batters he faced in that start, something that can not continue. He also failed to have good location on his fastball at any time during his start. He only managed to escape without an earned run in that particular start because of how lackluster the Seattle offense is. If he pitches like that against a good team like the Angels he will be ripped to shreds.
