Twins At White Sox: Liriano Gets Through The Seventh

Francisco Liriano is still carrying his no-hitter at U.S. Cellular Field, as he retired the Chicago White Sox in the bottom of the seventh in order.

Liriano started the inning by getting Adam Dunn to ground out to first baseman Justin Morneau for out number one. Paul Konerko followed that up by popping out to the shortstop, and Carlos Quentin grounded out to third to end the inning. Quentin's ground out came courtesy of a great play by third baseman Danny Valencia in order to keep the no-hitter intact.

Liriano is now up to 93 pitches in this one, so we will have to wait and see whether Ron Gardenhire will send him out for the top of the eighth. Again, Liriano hasn't thrown more than 96 pitches in any appearance this year, and in his career has never thrown a single complete game.

Seven innings in the books in Chicago, and the White Sox still don't have a hit as the Twins cling to a 1-0 lead.
