MLB: Liriano on target for Twins in loss to Rays


FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) -- Francisco Liriano is confident his 2012 season will be more consistent than his last.

He gave signs Thursday he may be right.

The left-hander struck out five of the nine batters he faced in in three scoreless innings but the Minnesota Twins lost 1-0 loss to a Tampa Bay Rays split squad.

"Nothing's bothering me right now, so it's going to be quite different from last year," Liriano said.
