Justin Verlander has only allowed two baserunners all night, and both were singles by Ichiro, who led off the seventh inning.
Verlander dug in deep, though, and knifed his way through the middle of the Yankees lineup with a man on base.
He’s thrown 101 pitches, so whether or not he throws a complete game could depend on how many pitches he throws in the eighth inning.
Verlander has just three strikeouts, but when he’s gotten behind in some counts, he has stepped up and got guys out.
The Tigers were retired in order in the seventh.
