Tigers Take On Rays On The Road

Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers

TAMPA (CBSSPORTS) – Justin Verlander does not seem too concerned about how he’s pitched over his last two starts for the Detroit Tigers.

Considering how he’s fared against the Tampa Bay Rays of late, the right-hander might not have an easy time getting back on track.

Winless in three starts, Verlander looks to avoid a third consecutive loss to the Rays on Saturday night.

Verlander (8-5, 3.90 ERA) went 4-0 with a 3.82 ERA in five starts before he allowed nine runs, 14 hits with seven walks and nine strikeouts over 10 innings to go 0-1 in the last two. He gave up four runs in five innings of a 7-5 win over Boston on Sunday.

“That’s sports,” Verlander said. “There’s ups and downs. Nobody’s at the peak of their game forever.

“I’ll get back there. I will. It’s just, like I said, finding that click – finding that rhythm.”
