Also, surprised Leyland didn't have Verlander go out for the 9th the other night to finish it.
I was surprised that Verlander didn't go out for the 9th inning the other night as well, until after the game, when Leyland said that Verlander told him he was spent, but would go out and try to get a 1-2-3 inning. Verlander is a workhorse who never wants to hand the ball over, so if he told Leyland he was spent, he must have been really spent.

Leyland said he didn't want to send Verlander out for the 9th and put a couple of runners on and then put Joaquin Benoit in a tough situation.
