Justin Verlander Is Here to Kick Ass and Chew Bubble Gum... and He's All Out of Bubble Gum

By

Right now, it’s Justin Verlander’s world and he’s just letting the rest of us use it for a while. Verlander had a light evening in tonight’s 6-0 win over the Diamondbacks, only throwing 8 innings of 5-hit baseball with 14 strikeouts and one walk. Over his last six starts, he’s 6-0 with a 0.72 ERA, 51 strikeouts and 6 walks. I’d say that those are video game numbers, but even video games are too hard nowadays to do that sort of thing.

In other news, Alex Avila hit a 3-run homer in the 4th inning, giving fans yet another reason to vote for him to start in the All-Star game. Also, the Cleveland Indians lost, meaning the Tigers are once again tied for first place in the AL Central.
