As of this morning, I have to say Justin Verlander has pitched a solid game and earned a win. It is a nice feeling when the "team ace" gets a win. His pitch count was up but so was his Ks. He was throwing the heat through the end of the match up that saw him in the 8th. All pretty positive if he builds on this and makes this a new trend this season--to be the pitcher he has the potential to become. Verlander has one more this week; the test of his metal!
On the bench between the 7th and 8th he was very intense. He needs to harness whatever he had last night and use it all season to be the all star he has the potential to be.
