Liriano dominates Indians

MINNEAPOLIS — Francisco Liriano is looking a lot like his old, nasty self early this season.

Liriano struck out six in eight scoreless innings to lead the Minnesota Twins to a 6-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.

Liriano (2-1) allowed six hits and walked two and Michael Cuddyer had a homer, a triple and three RBIs for the Twins, who are off to an 11-4 start thanks partly to Liriano regaining his form from 2006 when he was an All-Star.

David Huff (1-2) gave up only three hits in six innings for the Indians. But he walked six and allowed four runs before Aaron Laffey gave up a two-run triple to Cuddyer in the eighth that put the game out of reach.
