Francisco Liriano threw just 28 pitches in 2+ innings, and said he heard a “pop” in his elbow. He should be done for the season. Matt Garza came in and did nicely, throwing 5.2 innings. He did give up 8 hits, but only 1 run (debatable) and struck out 4.

Apparently there was a bad call at second base where the runner should have been out (for the A’s) but he was called safe. A ground-rule double followed, scoring the only run of the game. Also apparently, Justin Morneau made a bad baserunning error that could have led to a Twins’ run.

In some good news, Detroit lost as well, but Chicago won.
