08:09 AM ET 05.04 | With a 1-4 record this season and no career shutouts or complete games on his resume, Francisco Liriano's no-no was more unexpected than most. With Liriano, there always has been the promise of something great ... if he stayed healthy ... if he believed in himself a little more ... if he learned how to locate his pitches when the moments grew big. On Tuesday, the "ifs" were frozen into a remarkable feat. ... Now, fans will want to know if Liriano's no-hitter will turn around the Twins' lost season. That is impossible to say. But it can't hurt, particularly given Liriano's frequently fragile confidence.

The Twins are a team who needs things like this to jump start their season. Thought they wouldn't find their inspiration. Thanks Sox for giving it to them.
