This kid deserves to be an All-Star. Justin Verlander pitched 8 scoreless innings allowing only three hits and striking out seven without giving up a walk. He now has ten wins before the All-Star break and a 3.13 ERA. Verlander could have easily gone the complete game, but there was no need as the Tigers had a 5-0 lead. Jason Grilli came on to pitch the ninth for back-to-back shutouts of Houston.

Houston played sloppy defense and Detroit capitalized. Andy Pettitte gave up five runs, but only two were earned with two errors causing the damage. Craig Monroe dropped a perfect bunt single with runners at the corners and two outs. Inge followed with a single to make it 3-0 after six. The Tigers scored another pair of runs in the seventh on a bases loaded walk and a wild pitch. Detroit took advantage this series of a Houston team playing some bad baseball. The Tigers have now won six straight sweeping the Cardinals and the Astros.
