Astros ace Justin Verlander was an unstoppable force in Game 1 of the American League Division Series on Friday afternoon.
JV turned in seven full innings, giving up only one hit, and three walks — resulting in no runs. He managed the game perfectly, and did a great job of mixing up his pitches — keeping the young Rays hitters off balance.
As such, he was in good spirits walking off the mound when he sat in the dugout after completing the seven innings of work — so much so that he even waved to his supermodel wife, Kate Upton, and his daughter, Genevieve.
Gotta always remember to shout out the fam, and Verlander did there.
[Also, if interested, here are a few photos of Verlander and his beautiful wife, Kate Upton.]

We are so excited about launching the program Adopt Rescue Heal with @winsforwarriors and Valor Medical Service Dogs. This program adopts dogs from shelters and then trains them as service animals for military veterans. To go from watching the dog evaluations @houstonspca in November, to seeing them presented as trained service dogs with their military veteran companions this week, it has been such an inspiring journey and is truly a program that will change and save lives. To the first four veterans that just graduated from the program, thank you for your service and I hope you’re enjoying your time with Emily, Chester, Bear and Loki! #AdoptRescueHeal
