Liriano Allows Only One Hit For White Sox


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Francisco Liriano took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, Paul Konerko homered and drove in three runs Saturday, and the Chicago White Sox stayed on top of the AL Central with a 5-3 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

Liriano (6-11) was tremendous against his former team, allowing only a two-out homer in the seventh to Trevor Plouffe. He walked two, hit a batter and struck out nine in seven innings.

Acquired from the Twins on July 28, the victory was Liriano's third for the White Sox and his first against Minnesota.

Liriano's bid for the second no-hitter of his career ended after hitting Justin Morneau with a pitch with two outs in the seventh. Plouffe then homered to left-center on Liriano's 96th pitch of the game.
