Of course the 131st pitch was a 100 mph fast ball.
JV got into a bind in the 9th inning, or he would have thrown about 20 less pitches, but he gave Jim Leyland that look like he was going to have to drag him off the mound.
Those stats are pretty bad for Verlander. On my Angels' news, Weaver went 7 innings with 0 runs to pick up his second win. SSJ, you should just make a Verlander thread as he does deserve one. I loved it when Weaver and Verlander were battling for the CY Young up until mid August. Two great pitchers for the AL.
