Another No-Hitter for Verlander

By on 5.7.11 | 9:35PM

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander no-hit the Toronto Blue Jays this afternoon en route to a 9-0 victory.

Verlander's no-hitter comes only four days after Minnesota Twins pitcher Francisco Liriano threw one against the Chicago White Sox.

However, unlike Liriano who walked six batters, Verlander was nearly perfect. He had a perfect game going for seven and one third innings until he walked Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia in the eighth inning.

This is the second no-hitter of Verlander's career. He no-hit the Milwaukee Brewers in June 2007.
