Share

Justin Verlander dominated the Cleveland Indians as he allowed one run in eight innings in the Tigers' 5-1 win on Tuesday night.Verlander's performance was ace-like  as he gave up just four hits while striking out seven. It's the second straight start that he's allowed just one run, and it was also his first start of the season in which he hasn't issued a single walk. He hit 100 mph twice on the Progressive Field radar gun, but velocity wasn't his problem. Verlander was consistently locating his fastball, sinker, slider, and the changeup at 96-97mph. He is now 12-8 with a 3.74 ERA in 24 starts. He'll start again Sunday against the Yankees.

This has been a miserable season for Jeter as this marks his third trip to the DL this season, all due to separate concerns. He has managed to tally just 19 at-bats in 2013. Eduardo Nunez figures to get most the playing time at shortstop.
