Justin Verlander is rolling right now.
The Cy Young Award hopeful has set down nine of the first ten Twins he’s faced. He has not yet surrendered a hit as he has struck out three and walked just one.
After being spotted two runs from his offense in the second inning, Verlander has been in total control as the Tigers try to pick up a win and inch closer to an American League Central Division title.
The Chicago White Sox, who trail the Tigers by just one game with five remaining, are trailing the Tampa Bay Rays, 3-0, in the third inning of their game in Chicago.
