Justin Verlander struck out 11 Angels over six scoreless innings in a win Saturday.
Advice: Verlander scattered five hits and two walks, recording his highest single-game strikeout total since ... his last time out, when he fanned 12. That's been a common theme for Verlander, who now has 183 strikeouts on the year, second-most in the American League behind only Red Sox ace Chris Sale. He doesn't trail Sale or anyone else in innings pitched, ERA or WHIP, leading the league in all three categories, and the win improved Verlander to 10-5 with a 2.19 ERA and 0.85 WHIP through 22 starts overall. He'll next square off with the Rangers next weekend.
