Liriano, Twins roughed up by Orioles
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Last season's AL comeback player of the year had a rough start to spring training in 2011.
Slowed by tendinitis, the Minnesota Twins' Francisco Liriano was hit hard during his first start in a regular exhibition game Wednesday, an 11-2 loss to the Baltimore Orioles.
Liriano allowed six runs -- five earned -- and five hits in 12/3 innings.
"Nothing was working. My ball wasn't moving," Liriano said. "I was rushing. I was trying to do too much."
