Justin Verlander allows his first baserunner, still has no-hit bid through six innings
Justin Verlander is no longer perfect, but he’s still mowing down the Athletics’ lineup.
After retiring the first 16 batters he faced this evening, Verlander issued a one-out walk to Josh Reddick in the bottom of the sixth inning. Stephen Vogt followed with a long fly out to right-center and Coco Crisp flew out to left to end the inning, so Verlander still has six no-hit innings under his belt.
The Tigers have a 3-0 lead over the Athletics as we move into the seventh inning in Oakland. Verlander has a chance to bring his team to the ALCS in historic fashion.
