The reigning AL Cy Young winner and MVP was almost unhittable all night, hitting triple digits on the radar gun consistently even after throwing 100 pitches. All in all, Verlander only surrendered one walk and eight hits on the evening.


Ivan Nova wasn't nearly as effective for New York. The second-year man was knocked around for his second straight outing, allowing seven runs and 11 hits in just 5.1 frames.
