Tigers starter Justin Verlander tossed a two-hit shutout as the team defeated the Indians 4-0 on Tuesday night. Verlander took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. His fastball was approaching 100 mph and his knee-buckling breaking pitches were about 20 mph slower. "It's kind of tough on hitters when I can change speeds, elevation and do what I want to do," Verlander said. He had a season-high 12 strikeouts. He walked one, hit a batter with a pitch and has won six straight decisions. Verlander no-hit the Blue Jays last month in Toronto.
