Detroit scored first on Monday and made a run at Houston as the game went on but, ultimately, the Astros’ four-run first was too much to overcome in a 5–4 loss.
Yuli Gurriel had two hits and two RBIs and seven different Astros pitched in to the eight-hit effort.
Justin Verlander could end up going down as the most decorated Detroit pitcher ever. The Tigers were fortunate enough to draft him second overall in 2004, after Matt Bush, the converted pitcher who did virtually nothing throughout his troubled big league career.
But Verlander’s run with Detroit ran its course. He won a Cy Young, an MVP, and an American League pennant but never a World Series. He got that one as soon as he got to Houston.
He may get a second Cy and a second World Series this season. He’s 15–4 and leads the American League in categories such as innings pitched, strikeouts, and WHIP.
If JV were to get that second Cy and that second World Series, he would join an exclusive list as just the third pitcher ever to win multiple Cy Youngs, World Series, and throw multiple no-hitters. The only two who have done it before: Sandy Koufax and Tim Lincecum.

Detroit Tigers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: the Tigs.
In three games against his former team, Verlander has given up five homers. He has, however, struck out 31 in total. The Astros won’t be viable on the moneyline so I’ll take a flier on the Tigs, who could fetch close to +300.
