At this point in time, it's crucial to watch EVERY Justin Verlander start.
This dude is making history every time he takes the mound!
On Saturday night, Verlander pitched 8 innings and struck out a career-high 14 to give the Tigers a 6-0 shutout of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
In the 8th inning, he hit 100 MPH on the stadium scoreboard - on his 116th pitch.
In his last 6 starts, he's 6-0 with a 0.72 ERA. He's struck out 51 and walked 6 over that span - that doesn't even include his no-hitter!
Verlander passed "Wild Bill" Donovan to move into 10th place on the Tigers career strikeout list. Verlander now has 1,089 Ks. He leads the majors with 124 strikeouts.
With Kirk Gibson and Alan Trammell in the house - the Tigers will pay tribute to legendary manager Sparky Anderson by retiring his No. 11 before today's game against the Diamondbacks.
