Tigers hold on to win 6-4.

Looks like the White Sox will lose....and the division lead will be back to 2 games.

4 games left in the regular season.

Justin Verlander notched his 17th win on the season.

He hasn't been as dominant as last year, but also hasn't gotten as much run support.

17-8 on the season with an ERA of 2.64.

Verlander leads the majors in innings pitched (238.1), strikeouts (239), and WAR (7.2).

That said, I don't have any issue with Jered Weaver winning the CY Young Award this season.

Weaver has tossed a no-no, and is 20-4 with an ERA of 2.74.

A lot of writers have said they will vote for Verlander (and I hope he does) and you could make a case for him, as he leads the majors in a lot of categories, but I won't kick the dog if Jered Weaver or David Price wins it this season.
