Francisco Liriano

Francisco Liriano struck out 15 batters against the Athletics on Friday night and had 10 more strikeouts on Wednesday night against the Orioles, but he took the loss in each game. The only other major-league pitcher in the last 13 seasons (2000-2012) to lose back-to-back starts despite registering 25 or more strikeouts over those two games was Randy Johnson with the 2004 Diamondbacks. In August of that year Johnson had 14 strikeouts against the Reds and then 11 versus the Pirates and he was 0-2 in those games.
