Liriano strikes out 12, Pirates sweep Mets

PITTSBURGH (AP) Francisco Liriano kept up a Pittsburgh parade of strikeouts that hadn't been seen in nearly a half-century.

Liriano fanned 12 and the Pirates beat the New York Mets 9-1 Sunday for a three-game sweep.

After Gerrit Cole fanned 10 in the opener and A.J. Burnett struck out 10 more Saturday, Liriano (2-4) topped them in only six innings.
