Twins left-hander Francisco Liriano pitched a no-hitter against the White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field on Tuesday night.
The Twins won 1-0 behind Liriano (2-4) and Jason Kubel's home run in the fourth inning against Sox right-hander Edwin Jackson.
Liriano walked six and struck out two. He threw 123 pitches, 66 for strikes.
It was the sixth no-hitter in Twins history. It was Liriano's first complete game of his career at any professional level and the 13th no-hitter thrown against the Sox. The last was by the Royals' Bret Saberhagen in 1991.
"Liriano obviously was good,'' Sox manager Ozzie Guillen said. "When you throw a no-hitter, what can you tell anyone. He was very effective. He was changing speeds. We were chasing his pitches.''
Liriano came in with a 1-4 record and 9.13 ERA, the second highest earned run average of any pitcher going into a game to throw a no-hitter.
"To be honest I was running out of gas," he said. "I just thank my teammates that they made some great plays behind me tonight."
