Astros' Justin Verlander: Secures ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (9-2) threw seven innings, allowing three runs on five hits while striking out seven and walking none in Thursday's 7-3 win over Oakland.

It wasn't his sharpest performance, as Verlander allowed a pair of homers on the day, but it gets 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.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Earns eighth win of year Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (8-2) struck out nine and walked three in a win over the Rangers on Friday, allowing three runs on five hits in six innings.

Verlander gave up a leadoff home run to Shin-Soo Choo and a two-run double to Nomar Mazara, but kept the Astros in the game to pick up his fourth win in his last five starts. Verlander's 1.45 ERA and 0.76 WHIP lead all MLB starters, and his 113 strikeouts are good for fourth in the majors. He'll look to continue his dominance in his next start against the A's in Oakland.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Leaves with lead, gets no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings to pick up a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Red Sox.

Verlander was hurt by the walks as both runners came around to score on singles by J.D. Martinez, but he left with a lead after 101 pitches through six innings before Boston hammered reliever Will Harris for a pair of seventh-inning home runs. The Red Sox were pesky and fouled off a ton of pitches, forcing Verlander to expend 44 pitches to get through two innings. He left the game with a minuscule 1.24 ERA over 87.1 innings and is expected to make his next start Friday against the Rangers in Arlington.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Notches seventh victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (7-2) picked up the win Monday as he allowed one run on five hits while striking out five across 6.2 innings against the Yankees.

Verlander was spotted a three-run lead in the second inning, and he made it through six scoreless innings until surrendering a solo home run to Greg Bird in the seventh. His outstanding 1.11 ERA leads all of baseball, and he's struck out 98 batters across 81.1 innings. The 35-year-old has also shown excellent command of late, allowing just two walks in his last three starts (21.2 innings). Verlander figures to make his 13th start of the 2018 season Saturday against Boston.

Astros' Justin Verlander: Fans nine and picks up sixth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Verlander (6-2) got the win Wednesday, striking out nine over six innings while allowing one run on three hits and a walk.

Verlander was locked in, getting ahead with 17 first-pitch strikes to the 22 batters he faced and induced 18 swinging strikes. Even in his age-35 season, he continues to be absolutely lights out, boasting an absurd 1.08 ERA and career-high 11.2 K/9. Verlander has allowed more than one earned run just twice this year -- and more than two only once -- but he'll draw a tough matchup next time out in New York against the Yankees on Monday.
