Liriano Pitches Well In Loss


Although the Twins lost 9-3, there were some good signs in today’s spring training game. Francisco Liriano went two innings, giving up 1 hit and walking 1, but striking out 3 batters.

Ben Revere got his first start of the Spring, and the prospect went 0-4 with 2 strikeouts.

Danny Valencia went 1-1 with an RBI and a run scored.

The big news however was Joe Nathan. The closer left in the 3rd with tightness in his elbow. If you remember, Nathan had surgery after the year last year on that same elbow. The trade Nathan tribe (of which I am a member) certainly will be crowing today, although this isn’t a very good reason to be doing so.

The Twins have split squad action tomorrow.
