Memo to White Sox fans: in case you've forgotten already, the view from the top is pretty nice. You know what else is nice? To see Francisco Liriano back and pitching well, showing flashes of what made him so unhittable back in 2006. He did throw 96 pitches in six innings, and he walked three batters, but overall he was excellent. He struck out five and allowed just three hits, and showed some composure in pitching around an error by Brendan Harris that loaded the bases in the third inning.
All in all, a 6-2 victory over the Indians moves the Twins ahead of the White Sox for first place in the AL Central. Who would have guessed the Twins would be in first place as late as August 3rd this year?
