Liriano too tough for Tigers, Verlander

ASSOCIATED PRESS

DETROIT — Francisco Liriano pitched eighth scoreless innings, leading the Minnesota Twins to a 2-0 win over the Detroit Tigers Tuesday night.

Liriano (3-0) struck out 10 and gave up the first of four hits in the fifth and walked only one. Jon Rauch closed the game for his seventh save.

Justin Verlander (1-2) gave up an unearned run and struck out a season-high seven over 5 2/3 innings.

Left fielder Ryan Raburn dropped what would've been the third out of the sixth to let Jim Thome score from first after he walked. Second baseman Scott Sizemore made a wide throw on what should've been the final out of the seventh, allowing Michael Cuddyer to score.
