DETROIT -- Francisco Liriano and Alexi Casilla both left Minnesota's game against the Detroit Tigers on Friday night due to illness.

With the Tigers leading 2-0 in the fourth inning, Liriano signaled to the Twins dugout and was quickly attended to by the team's training staff. All four infielders came to the mound, and when Liriano left the game, Casilla joined him.

The team announced moments later that both were feeling sick.
