Justin Verlander tossed five shutout innings in a 10-0 win over the Phillies Tuesday. He did not allow a hit and walked one, striking out 10 in the win.
Verlander finishes his regular season 18-4 with an unreal 1.75 ERA. He becomes the first pitcher since Cy Young over 100 years ago to pitch a sub-2.00 ERA and be at least 39 years old. He is a shoe-in for both AL Comeback Player of the Year and the AL Cy Young Award. It's truly incredible what Verlander has accomplished this season.
