      Tigers' Justin Verlander allows one run in Monday's win

      Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander won his fifth game of the season Monday against the Rangers, allowing just one run with five strikeouts and one walk in six innings. Aside from a solo homer and a double by Prince Fielder, Verlander limited the streaky Rangers offense to singles. The veteran has been excellent since the start of August, with a 2.53 ERA in 10 starts, and he is starting to resemble the ace he was a couple of years ago. Verlander's final start of the season will come Sunday against the White Sox.

      Tigers SP Justin Verlander goes 8 2/3 innings in no-decision

      Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander allowed two runs on five hits, walking one and striking out seven over 8.2 innings, but came away with a no-decision against the Royals on Friday night. Verlander was spectacular, carrying a 3-1 lead into the ninth inning. Unfortunately, the bullpen gave the lead away and the Tigers wouldn't close it out until the 12th inning. He's had his ups and downs this year, but his second half performance suggests he is getting more comfortable pitching as more of a finesse pitcher after years of being a top power arm. Many really good ones make the adjustment.

      Tigers SP Justin Verlander remains on fire in beating Royals

      Tigers rebounding right-hander Justin Verlander put together the worst performance in his last five starts Tuesday night in Kansas City. But that's not saying much - it was still pretty darn good. Verlander, who was coming off a one-hitter, yielded two earned runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings with one walk and four whiffs. He raised his record to 2-4 in the process. The big blow was a Kendrys Morales home run in the fourth inning. He has given up a mere three runs over his last 35 2/3 innings to lower his ERA to 3.40 as he continues to show flashes of the Verlander of old.

      Tigers SP Justin Verlander just misses no-hit bid

      Justin Verlander came oh-so-close to registering the third no-hitter of his stellar career Wednesday, as the Tigers starter allowed a ninth-inning double for his only hit in a complete-game, shutout win over the Angels. Verlander was in command most of the night, striking out nine and walking two. Facing the Angels' Chris Iannetta to lead off the ninth, Verlander gave up a lined shot that just landed fair down the left-field line, kicking up the chalk as it hit the ground. Verlander then retired the Angels in order to earn just his second victory of the season. He had lost three of his last four starts, although over his last three starts had given up just one earned run.
