Very nice pitching match-up between two survivors of Tommy John Surgery tonight. Liriano has pitched 6+ innings in 10 of 11 starts. This is good. He's also owned interleague play: 7-1, 2.67 ERA, .198 batting average, 61 Ks in 54 IP. This is also good. After last night's clusterfluff, a shutdown start from the staff ace would be most welcome, and he's definitely owed a victory after getting Crainwreck'd in his last start.
