Liriano pitches seven innings in Twins' win


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Francisco Liriano allowed one run over seven innings to lead the Minnesota Twins past the Tampa Bay Rays 4-1 on Sunday.

Minnesota, which got a total of just 6 1-3 innings from its starters during the first three games of the series, split the four-game set with the AL East-leading Rays, who clinched at least a wild-card spot Saturday.

Liriano (6-3) rebounded from a rough start last Tuesday when the left-hander gave up eight runs over 2 2-3 innings in the Twins' 12-9 loss to Cleveland. He scattered five hits helping Minnesota complete a long road trip with a 4-6 record.
