Liriano to pitch playoff opener
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Francisco Liriano will get the start when Minnesota opens the AL playoffs next month,
"He's been winging it pretty good," manager Ron Gardenhire said before Wednesday's game against Cleveland.
Liriano is 14-8 with a 3.44 ERA in 29 starts, including 6-1 in his past 10. The left-hander will have six days' rest be-tween his final regular season and first playoff starts.
