Verlander wins #23 as Tigers shut down White Sox, 5-0

Post  Admin on Wed Sep 14, 2011 12:32 am

Justin Verlander pitched seven innings to earn his major league-best 23rd win as the Detroit Tigers shut out the Chicago White Sox, 5-0 for their 11th straight victory.

Verlander (23-5) allowed six hits, struck out six and walked two while becoming the first Tiger since Hal Newhouser in 1946 to win 11 consecutive starts and the AL’s first 23-game winner since Barry Zito in 2002.

Victor Martinez hit a three-run homerun for the AL Central-leading Tigers, whose winning streak is the longest since September of 1968. Miguel Cabrera had two doubles, walked twice and scored two runs.
