It may sound strange to say that Liriano could have thrown his best game when he had a no hitter in May. Hell, he didn’t even throw a complete game today.
But in the no hitter, he was all over the place, walked a bunch and struggled his way through it.
Today? He had a perfect game for a while, retiring the first 19 batters, and kept a no hitter into the 8th. He was dominating.
And I am glad the borderline call in the 7th was called an error. A no hitter should be broken up with a clean hit.
I call that the “Sabathia Rule” based on C.C.’s no hitter bid while he was with the Brewers.
Either way, good game today Liriano.
Your best one of the year.
