Indians dominated by Francisco Liriano, lose 6-0

compiled from staff and wire reports

A few years ago Francisco Liriano was an unhittable and dominating pitcher as a top 1-2 pitcher in the Twins rotation. He could rack up strikeouts and the Twins won almost everytime he pitched.

But in 2007, when he sustained an arm injury, mostly everybody thought his career was done because of the Tommy John surgery. But here in 2010, he starting to regain that beforementioned form and the Cleveland Indians witnessed it first hand.

Liriano struck out six in eight scoreless innings to lead the Twins to a 6-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night.

Liriano (2-0) allowed six hits and walked two and Michael Cuddyer had a homer, a triple and three RBI’s for the Twins, who are off to an 11-4 start because of  Liriano’s improvement.

David Huff was the loser (1-2) giving up only 3 hits in six innings for the Indians. But he walked six and allowed four runs before giving way to Aaron Laffey.

In 2009, Columbus Clippers pitcher Hector Rondon was very dominating against the Indianapolis Indians. But in 2010, they’ve figured him out.

For the second straight outing against Indianapolis, Rondon allowed 7 runs in less than 4 innings and again suffered the loss in the Clippers 9-4 defeat.

The Venezuelan right-hander was strong the first 3 innings, allowing no runs, but the wheels fell off in the 4th inning when Indy scored 7 times on 7 hits, including 3 home runs before being knocked out of the game.

Donnie Veal was the starter and winner for Indianapolis.

Victory Field in Indianapolis is one of the biggest parks in the International League. It is a park known for triples, inside-the-park homers and deep warning track fly balls.

But in Columbus’ 6-1 win over Indianapolis, the home run ball played a vital role in the game.

Shelley Duncan started the scoring with a 2-run blast in the 3rd inning, his 2nd homer of the season. In the 5th, after a Michael Brantley RBI single in his return to the Clippers roster, Jason Donald went to the opposite field for another 2-run dinger to give Columbus a 5-1 lead. A lead Wes Hodges single scored Damaso Espino in the 7th for the final Clippers run of the game.

Jeanmar Gomez was very solid for the Clippers, striking out 7 batters and allowing only 1 run on 6 hits over 5.2 innings of work for his 1st win of the season. Frank Herrmann threw 1.1 scoreless innings of relief followed by Mike Gosling and Saul Rivera who each tossed an inning of shutout baseball.

Carlos Santana left the game in the third inning after fouling a ball off of his leg. The Clippers have him listed as day-to-day.

The Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints will get an early test when they host the Minnesota Vikings in the NFL season opener, a rematch of their thrilling NFC title game which was decided in overtime.

The nationally televised game will be Thursday night September 9. New Orleans won its first conference title by beating Minnesota 31-28 on a 40-yard field goal by Garrett Hartley 4:45 into overtime. The Saints went on to defeat the Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in the Super Bowl.

Also in announcing the 2010 schedule, the NFL has added a little quirk to the schedule.

In an effort to make late-season games more meaningful and to stop teams from sitting out regular players once they have clinched a playoff spot, the NFL has set up all intradivision matchups for the final Sunday January 2, 2011.

compiled from staff and wire reports

Lorenzo Romar is staying  at his alma mater, the University of  Washington for another decade.

Already moving up the Huskies all-time coaching wins list at number 3, Romar agreed to a new 10-year contract that will keep him at the school through the 2019-2020 season.

Romar just completed his eighth season at Washington, the school he once played for and has built into one of the elite programs on the West Coast. The Huskies finished 26-10 last season, won their second Pac-10 Conference tournament title and advanced to the second round of 16 in the NCAA tournament for the third time in romar’s tenure.

Romar agreed to a contract extension during the 2006-2007 season that kept him  in Seattle through 2015-16. That deal paid Coach Romar $1.105 million per season in guaranteed money-$375,000 in base salary and the rest coming through endorsements, media commitments and speaking engagements. That contract put Romar into the upper echelon of salary for Pacific 10 Conference coaches.

Romar played two seasons at Washington from 1978-1980 and spent five years in the NBA before becoming a college coach.

Byron Leftwich is reacquired by Pittsburgh to compete with Dixon and Batch at QB

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Pittsburgh Steelers, always a team that makes sure they have all of the angles covered, reacquired quarterback Byron Leftwich by dealing a seventh-round draft pick to Tampa Bay. The Steelers are making sure they have a more experienced QB around during Ben Roethlisberger’s 6 game suspension for off-the-field conduct.

Leftwich backed up Big Ben in 2008, when the Steelers won the Super Bowl. He knows offensive coordinator Bruce Arians’ system and could be ready to play September 12 when the Steelers open against Atlanta.

Pittsburgh already has third-year QB Dennis Dixon and longtime backup  Charlie Batch under contract. But Batch has been injured each of the past two years. Dixon has started only one NFL game, but will likely compete with Leftwich for the number 1 job.

The 30-year-old Leftwich played in five games for Pittsburgh in 2008, throwing for 303 yards and two touchdowns. He was 7 of 10 for 129 yards and a touchdown while replacing Roethlisberger against Washington on November 3, 2008.

The former Marshall Thundering Herd QB played for Jacksonville from 2003-2006, Atlanta in 2007 and Tampa Bay in 2009. He started the Bucs’ first three games last season before being replaced by Josh Johnson because Leftwich went on injured reserve with an elbow injury. He completed 58 of 107 passes for 594 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.
