Verlander First to 20 Wins in Tiger Victory
Ace Justin Verlander became the first pitcher to reach 20 wins yesterday as the Detroit Tigers beat the Minnesota Twins; 6 – 4. In a performance judged as not being one of JV’s best of the year, he and the Tigers still found a way to win. Miguel Cabrera and Alex Avila both hit solo home runs as the Tigers picked up 10 hits in route to the victory. The two teams wrap up their three game series this afternoon with Brad Penny taking the mound for Detroit. GO TIGERS!
