Yeah, that's where I got it.

That looked like vintage Liriano in the second inning. Hopefully he can keep it up.

I'm wondering how short the leash will be and who's likely to releive him in the 4th or 5th inning if needed.

Yeah, I dont know. If he makes it through 4 with 2 runs or less, we should pull him.

Huge double play. Liriano badly needed that.

Nice atbat by Revere. Let's see if he can wreak havoc on the basepaths now.

I believe Swarzak is scheduled to replace Liriano, of course that could change depending on how deep Liriano goes, but considering he is at 55 pitches after 3 innings he will be out in the 5th inning.

Not the best I've seen Frankie pitch, but so far it is his best start of the year. Hopefully a trend is developing...

Letting him start against such a poor batting team was a good idea. Maybe this will help him get back on track.
