After no-hitter, Verlander had his steak and ate it, too
Question of the Day
TORONTO | Justin Verlander was picking up the check. The steaks and wine were on him, and why not?
The Detroit Tigers ace had just pitched the second no-hitter of his career, and after he made sure the Blue Jays pretty much came nowhere near the ball, he made sure his teammates came nowhere near the bill.
Fresh off the 9-0 victory, Verlander, 28, treated a small group to dinner at a steak house. “A great night,” the Goochland, Va., native said. “It was fantastic. Probably one of the best dinners I’ve ever had.”
Verlander faced the minimum 27 batters.
His only blemish, an eighth-inning walk on a 3-2 fastball to rookie catcher J.P. Arencibia, was immediately erased by Edwin Encarnacion’s double-play grounder.
