20 Sept was a bullpen implosion, I'd hardly chalk that up to Liriano.
Including that loss, the other losses he was a very tough pitcher on the Reds lineup. Averaging less than 200 BA is no small feat. He gave up a few hits and a few HRs, but 10 earned runs over 4 games is still no small feat especially when considering the lineup he's working against.
But point well taken... he has cracked before.
