  • 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.

  • Justin Verlander allowed six runs -- five earned -- over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Tigers.
    Advice: Verlander finishes the first half with somewhat of a dud against his former team. He struck out 12 batters and issued zero walks, but four different Tigers went deep off him. The veteran right-hander will head into the All-Star break with a 9-5 record, 2.29 ERA, 0.84 WHIP, and 172/24 K/BB ratio in 137 2/3 innings.
