Twins Francisco Liriano becomes 30th ever to fan 15 and lose

Quote:
Francisco Liriano whiffed a career-high 15 batters on Friday night, but he still took a loss in a 6-3 game after giving up four runs three earned in eight innings against the As.

Jonny Gomes hit a grand slam in the fourth inning to account for all of the scoring off Liriano. It was one of just four hits he allowed.

Liriano joins Jake Peavy and Cliff Lee as the only active pitchers to have a 15-strikeout game turn into a loss. It happened to Peavy, then with San Diego, when he gave up two runs in seven innings against the Braves on May 22, 2006. Lee did it last year, allowing three runs in seven innings in a 5-0 loss to the Braves. Both Peavy and Lee actually fanned 16 in their losses.

Liriano is in really good company, though. The feat had been performed only seven other times since 1990: three times by Randy Johnson, once by Pedro Martinez, once by Curt Schilling and once by John Smoltz. And once by Sterling Hitchcock, but well gloss over that one.
