It was supposed to be Francisco Liriano getting the ball for the Twins Saturday night against Jered Weaver and the Angels. Liriano, as you'll recall, threw a no-hitter earlier this season. His replacement for Saturday night, Anthony Swarzak, did his best to match the feat.

He held the Angels hitless through 7 1/3 innings. Call it the Futility Bowl, because Weaver has held the Twins to just two hits and the game is tied at zero.

Swarzak, 25, entered the game with a 7.71 ERA. In his only previous start this season, he allowed eight hits and five runs in 5 1/3 innings in a loss to Tampa Bay on April 28.

There have been two no-hitters so far this season. The aforementioned gem from Liriano in addition to a no-no from Justin Verlander just a few days later.
