Justin Verlander allowed two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over eight innings of the no-decision Saturday.
Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said Justin Verlander had put in more work than normal since his last start, which paid off for at least one outing for the former CY Young and MVP who had allowed seven runs in each of his two previous starts. JV will look to build off of Saturday's dominating performance, (that helped proved he is not hurt), when he takes the mound again on Friday in Houston.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Aramis Ramirez confirmed that 2015 will be his final season.
Ramirez will turn 37 in June in what will be his 18th major league season. He was a legitimate 30-home run threat during the prime of his career, but now here we are 10 years past that prime and he's more of a 15-home run threat these days. Injuries were a big part of his decline and he's missed an awful lot of games over the years, but considering how bad the third base position looks this year, one last go-around with A-Ram might not be the worst thing in the world. Just make sure you have a viable back-up option. Analysis: Howard Bender
