by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Making his fourth start of the season, Verlander (2-1) permitted a run-scoring single to David Murphy in the fourth and a two-run single to Michael Brantley in the following frame. He surrendered three unearned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out seven over five innings. He tossed 113 pitches, 74 of which came for strikes.

Verlander has struck out at least seven in each of his last two starts. He owns a 2.08 ERA and 1.35 WHIP along with 20:10 K:BB ratio over 26 innings. He'll make his next start Tuesday at home against the White Sox.

Justin Verlander loses tightly contested pitcher's duel
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/14) Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander pitched well over eight innings Sunday against the Orioles, but opposing starter Chris Tillman was just that much better during a 3-1 win for Baltimore.

Verlander (0-1) allowed just two runs on five hits and two walks in eight innings. He struck out three. But Tillman allowed just one run in 8 1/3 innings -- winning Sunday's pitcher's duel.

Verlander held a 1-0 lead before Nelson Cruz tied the game with an two-out RBI double in the sixth inning. The Orioles took the lead for good on Adam Jones' sac fly with two outs in the eighth.

Verlander's next scheduled start is likely to come Saturday against the Padres.
