The trade deadline is coming very, very soon, but Justin Verlander tried to steal the show on this Sunday. The Tigers' ace did not allow a hit through 7 2/3 innings against the Angels. He threw his second career no-hitter earlier this season (May 7 at Toronto) and is one of the top pitchers in baseball, so things like this come as little surprise these days.

An interesting movement, after a near-brawl in the bottom of the seventh inning -- in which Jered Weaver was ejected -- Erick Aybar led off the Angels' eighth with an attempted bunt for a hit. Verlander fielded the ball and threw it away. The Tigers official scorer ruled it an error, so the no-no stayed intact. Later in the inning, a grounder to third base drew a throw home from Don Kelly. A rundown resulted and eventually Verlander couldn't hold onto the feed and the unearned run scored. But the Angels still didn't have a hit until Maicer Izturis knocked in Peter Bourjos with a two-out single, cutting the lead to 3-2.
