This man is magic, pure unprecedented magic. When most babbled on this year as Justin had fell into a slump compared to the on fire Max Scherzer, all I could think of is do all these people have complete very short memory loss. Our 2011 Cy Young/MVP Winner or who also shut this same team down in game 5 in 2012.
Justin Verlander pitched another in classic Verlander style throwing just a two hit game into the 9th when he gave up his third being a home run to spoil the shutout. Detroit loves this guy so much we felt bad for him that he didn’t get it, the shutout that is. His spectacular performance did get him the Win, Phil Coke the save and Delmon Young came through again.
EDIT: THIS IS LAST YEARS. JUSTIN HERO AGAIN 2013.

Our 2011 MVP showed why he was the MVP by shutting out the Oakland A’s 6 zip with 11 K’s and allowing only 4 hits. And the rest of the team did what they did best, fighting hard with the bats that chased down Chicago then surpassing them at the end of the season to win the ALCD title.
Verlander surpassed Sandy Koufax 1965 strike out record of 10 and went the full nine innings to finish Oakland’s season.
