Justin Verlander Throws Seven Shutout Innings In Tigers Loss to Braves

The Tigers had their regulars today yet they still managed just five hits and their only two runs came off a Matt Treanor homer in the seventh.  Carlos Guillen had two of those hits and while Miguel Cabrera singled in three at bats, he struck out the other two times.

The big news was Justin Verlander’s seven shutout innings.  He gave up just two hits and a walk with three strikeouts and that dropped his spring ERA to 2.30.  This came shortly after he was announced as the Tigers opening day starter.  Of course the bad news was Brandon Lyon and Fernando Rodney were both touched up.  When your supposedly two best starters have ERA’s of 7.88 and 6.00, you know you have some problems. 

I was going to watch this game via the archive but the Spartans are on right now.  I am curious as to how strong Verlander looked in this one.
