Another no-no? No no no

So much for any notion of Francisco Liriano throwing back-to-back no-hitters.

And so much for the idea that the Twins are going to snap out of their early-season funk anytime soon.

In fact, the events of Tuesday night at Target Field pretty much summed up what has been a miserable season for the Twins except for Liriano's gem last week. Liriano got shelled by the Detroit Tigers in a 10-2 loss, and Target Field got shelled by hail the size of golf balls.

Liriano is still feeling the effects of his upper-respiratory problem and sore throat, and he looked it. He walked three of the 14 batters he faced -- one walk was intentional, but he almost overthrew catcher Drew Butera with one of the pitches -- and was taken out after struggling through three innings and apparently becoming ill.

"He got sick and was having troubles catching his breath out there," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He stopped, threw a couple of pitches, finished the inning. But once he got into the dugout, he was having a hard time breathing again. So get him out of there."

The Twins continue to have the worst record in the majors (12-22), and the sellout crowd let them know about it with a cascade of boos. Minnesota's minus-72 run differential also is the worst in the majors.
