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.
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. May 24 - 4:27 PM
