Astros' Justin Verlander: Strikes out 11 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (11-8) struck out 11 and walked none in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday, allowing two runs on six hits in six innings.

Verlander shut out the Rockies through five innings but was done in by a two-run homer off the bat of Nolan Arenado. This marks the eighth time this year that Verlander has recorded a double-digit strikeout total, and his 217 strikeouts are good for third in the majors. Verlander is pitching phenomenally this year and his 11-8 record has much to do with lower run support than previous years -- he's receiving 4.1 RS/9 this year compared to 5.4 RS/9 last year between Detroit and Houston. His next start will be a matchup with the A's in Oakland.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Whiffs 14 in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (11-6) allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out a season-high tying 14 over 7.2 innings in Friday's 2-1 win over the Dodgers.

Verlander was touched for a leadoff home run by Joc Pederson in the home half of the first inning, then shut down the Dodgers, who did not have a runner reach second base against him the rest of the way. This was the third consecutive start and fifth over the last six that Verlander has allowed two or fewer runs. His next turn is scheduled for Thursday at home against the Mariners.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Fans seven in tough loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (10-6) took the loss Saturday, allowing two runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings while striking out seven as the Astros fell 7-3 to the Rangers.

Both runs scored on solo shots by Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Rougned Odor, but with the Astros offense being uncharacteristically flat, that was enough to cost Verlander the win. The right-hander has now lost four of his last five decisions, but he'll still take an exceptional 2.24 ERA into his next start Friday on the road against the Dodgers.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Dominates Angels to get back in win column
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (10-5) picked up the win in Saturday's 7-0 victory over the Angels, allowing five hits and two walks over six scoreless innings while striking out 11.

Remarkably, it was the right-hander's first win in over a month, as Verlander has gone 0-3 over his previous six starts with an uncharacteristic 4.10 ERA and 1.9 HR/9 in 37.1 innings. He took full advantage of the All-Star break to re-focus, however, generating 18 swinging strikes in 92 pitches and fanning Ian Kinsler and Luis Valbuena with runners on second and third to shut down the Angels' only real threat in the fourth inning. Verlander will take a 2.19 ERA into his next start Saturday at home against the Rangers.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Coughs up four homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (9-5) threw six innings Sunday, allowing six runs (five earned) on six hits while striking out 12 and taking the loss against the Tigers. He struck out 12 and allowed four home runs.

John Hicks got things started with a two-run shot off Verlander in the second inning. Verlander would allow three solo homers as the game progressed. On the bright side, the 35-year-old's 12 strikeouts marked the second-best performance he's produced this season, and he's fanned 28 batters in just three July starts. He'll carry his 2.29 ERA to Coors Field against the Rockies next Wednesday.
