Justin Verlander allowed three runs on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts over 6.2 innings on Monday.

Verlander stopped the bleeding Monday after allowing a total of nine runs over his previous 12.1 innings (two starts). This wasn't exactly the be-all, end-all of starts, but it was his fourth quality start over his last six and, believe it or not, actually lowered his ERA to a still-disgusting 4.84 on the year. He's definitely not what he once was and it's hard to think he'll ever recapture that form he once had, so this start coming up against the Angels might not be the best time to start him.
