Starting pitchers Francisco Liriano of the Minnesota Twins and Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers, the first pair to toss no-hitters within a five-day span of one another since Al Leiter of the Florida Marlins and Dwight Gooden of the New York Yankees in May 1996 (courtesy of the Elias Sports Bureau), have been named Co-Players of the Week for the period ending May 8th.

On Tuesday, May 3, Liriano became the first opposing pitcher to throw a no-hitter at U.S. Cellular Field as he led the Twins to a 1-0 win over the Chicago White Sox. That became the seventh no-hitter in franchise history (including one that came when the team was known as the Washington Senators) and the first no-hitter for a Twins pitcher since Eric Milton no-hit the Angels at the Metrodome on September 11, 1999. The ChiSox were no-hitted for the 13th time in franchise history, the first since Kansas City’s Bret Saberhagen on August 26, 1991, and the first at home since Jack Morris of the Detroit Tigers accomplished the feat on April 7, 1984 at old Comiskey Park. The 2006 A.L. All-Star struck out two and walked six in the 123-pitch outing, becoming the fifth pitcher in the last 30 years to issue more walks than strikeouts in a no-hit performance.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the 27-year-old Liriano is the fifth Dominican Republic-born pitcher to throw a no-hitter, joining Juan Marichal (1963), Ramon Martinez (1995), Jose Jimenez (1999) and Ubaldo Jimenez (2010). Liriano’s no-hitter was the first complete game and the first shutout of his pro career.

On Saturday, May 7, Verlander became the 27th player in modern MLB history and the second Tigers pitcher to throw two career no-hitters (also Virgil Trucks, both in 1952) when he blanked the Toronto Blue Jays, 9-0, at the Rogers Centre. It was the seventh no-hitter in the team’s decorated history and the first since Verlander, the 2006 A.L. Rookie of the Year, held the Milwaukee Brewers hitless at Comerica Park on June 12, 2007. The Virginia native almost reached perfection in the 108-pitch outing, issuing one walk in the eighth inning while striking out four. The 28-year-old’s no-hit performance marked the first on the road for Detroit since Morris’ no-hitter at Comiskey Park in 1984. Toronto was no-hit for the fourth time in franchise history, the last coming when Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan of the Texas Rangers pitched the seventh and final no-hitter of his career on May 1, 1991.
