In three starts with Houston, Verlander is 3-0 with a 0.89 ERA. Just dominant. So the Astros are headed to the playoffs, and Verlander should get the ball in Game 1 of the ALDS.

Justin Verlander wins Astros debut, thanks to an ex-Tigers teammate

Justin Verlander wins Astros debut, thanks to an ex-Tigers teammate

Verland pitched six strong innings in a 3-1 Houston win. For awhile, Justin Verlander had to feel like he was still pitching for the Tigers. The right-hander was out there dealing on the mound, but his team wasn't providing much run support. In fact, the Houston Astros were hitless through six innings and the game was in a 1-1 tie. But that's when Cameron Maybin, one of Verlander's former teammates in Detroit and another Houston deadline acquisition, delivered a two-run home run in the seventh to make sure the Astros' newest starer had a successful debut. "It's...
