DETROIT (AP) There were times this year when Justin Verlander took the mound while his team was reeling a bit – and the right-hander’s presence was Detroit’s best shot at snapping out of a momentary funk.

“I think pitching, much like hitting, is contagious,” Verlander said. “Guys go out there night in and night out and see guys have a good game, and the next day he wants to have a good game, so on and so forth. And I think that’s what we are feeding on right now.”
