Verlander only gave up 2 runs through 6 complete innings on July 26th. Needs to be given a Q S
Well, you lucked out tonight, because he ended up getting a complete game, even though he only pitched due to the rain dela in Boston.
To earn a quality start, a pitcher must FINISH the game giving up 3 earned runs or less in 6 or more innings. Verlander gave up 5 runs in 7 innings, therefore it was not a quality start.
