Astros' Justin Verlander: Secures ninth win
Verlander (9-2) threw seven innings Thursday, allowing three runs on five hits while striking out seven and walking none in a 7-3 win over Oakland.
It wasn't his sharpest performance, as Verlander allowed a pair of homers on the day, but it got the job done. At the end of May, the 25-year-old owned a 1.11 ERA, but that number has jumped to a still-incredible 1.61 after Thursday's contest. Verlander will have a very enticing matchup early next week at home against the Rays.
