Justin Verlander struggled in his 2014 debut allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits while walking three batters and striking out two in the no decision.

Hopes were high for JV to get off to hot start after a solid spring training where he did not allow a single run in 20 innings pitched. In Verlander's defense he has a track record of starting slow, but the Royals made plenty of hard contact against him and the three walks in the fourth inning are worrisome, but do not panic just yet as you already knew there was a chance he would pitch more like a number 2 starter than the consistent ace he had been before last season.
