Justin Verlander gave up four hits and two runs over seven stellar innings Wednesday in the Astros’ win over the Angels.
He notched nine strikeouts over his 97 pitches. Verlander had a perfect game going until Zack Cozart broke it up with a two-out single in the fifth inning. He cruised through his first six innings but seemed to run out of gas in the seventh, allowing a solo home run to Albert Pujols and an RBI double to Cozart later in the frame. Including the postseason, Verlander is now 13-1 with a 1.55 ERA in 17 appearances (16 starts) since joining Houston late last season. Wednesday was the first time the right-hander threw to a catcher other than Brian McCann, who caught all of Verlander’s previous starts with Houston. Apr 25 - 6:02 PM
