Justin Verlander of my beloved Tigers threw a no-hitter against the Brewers in Motown on Tuesday! "Poise beyond his age," wrote ESPN's Jerry Crasnick. The 2006 American League Rookie of the Year's fastball still clocked 101 mph in the ninth inning, and his sick curveball and hit-the-brakes changeup eluded batters all night. You can watch all 27 outs here.
The final line: 9 innings pitched, 112 pitches, 0 hits, 0 earned runs, 12 strikeouts, 4 walks. Now if that's not a reason to enjoy a cold one with your buddies, I don't know what is.
