      Pirates SP Francisco Liriano strikes out five in no-decision Friday

      Pirates starting pitcher Francisco Liriano allowed four runs on seven hits, he did not walk a batter and struck out five over five innings, but came away with a no-decision as the Pirates downed the Reds 6-4 in 12 innings Friday night. Liriano finishes the regular season with a 12-7 record to go with a solid 3.38 ERA. He also notched 205 strikeouts in 186.2 innings, so overall he falls on the plus side of fantasy performers. Inconsistency was perhaps his most frustrating trait as he went through very good stretches and equally ugly volatile periods. For example, he posted a 4.94 ERA for the month of August (his worst month) as a follow-up to carrying a 2.03 ERA in July (his best month).

      PIrates SP Francisco Liriano falls apart in loss to Brewers

      The Pirates had won 11 consecutive games started by southpaw Francisco Liriano when they arrived at the ballpark Thursday in Milwaukee. Liriano didn't allow them to make it 12. He continued to slump with a weak effort in which he allowed four runs on seven hits in just five innings with five walks and four strikeouts. The walk total was his highest since April 26. He was fine through four, but a Khris Davis double tallied one in the fifth and a walk, triple and double to start the sixth sent him to the showers. Liriano now owns a 3.40 ERA, its highest point since May 29. He has given up 19 runs in 32 1/3 innings since the beginning of August.

      Francisco Liriano rides Pirates' offensive outburst for eighth win

      Pirates left-hander Francisco Liriano had a rather uneven start against the Cardinals on Thursday.

But he exhibited some control issues, and he allowed two runs to score in the bottom half while a third run scored on him in the sixth. Overall, Liriano went six innings, allowing three runs on six hits. He walked four and struck out five, throwing just 52 of his 94 pitches for strikes in the 10-5 victory.
