Francisco Liriano loses in return from DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Pirates starting pitcher Francisco Liriano lasted just four innings in his return from an oblique injury during Sunday's 6-3 loss at Cincinnati. The veteran left-hander, who has been out since mid-June, allowed three runs on three hits and six walks, while striking out four.

The Reds sent nine players to the plate in the second inning and scored three runs on Kris Negron's three-run homer. It could have been worse, but the Reds left the bases loaded.

Liriano allowed just a walk in a scoreless third inning before loading the bases in the fourth inning. Luckily, he escaped the jam without allowing a run, but Liriano would not be back out for the fifth inning. 

He has suffered a loss in four of his last six starts. Liriano is scheduled to start the first game after the All-Star break Friday against the Rockies.
