Justin Verlander pitched the first no-hitter in Comerica Park history last night.
Verlander pitched the first no-hitter at the ballpark, leading Detroit over the Milwaukee Brewers 4-0 Tuesday night. “It was the best thing that ever happened to me,” he said.
The 2006 AL Rookie of the Year came back with the game of his career, striking out 12. He benefited from several stellar defensive plays, the best by Neifi Perez, who turned a possible single up the middle in the eighth into an inning-ending double play.
“About the fifth or sixth you can’t help but think about it a little,” Verlander said. “Everyone kept giving me high-fives and nobody came and sat next to me.”
This was the first no-hitter in Detroit since Nolan Ryan of the Angels did it at Tiger Stadium in 1973. Comerica opened in 2000. Milwaukee was last no-hit on April 27, 1994, by Scott Erickson at Minnesota. This was the third no-hitter since interleague play began â€” David Cone did it for the Yankees against Montreal and a set of Houston pitchers blanked the Yankees.
It was the second no-hitter of the season in the majors, with Mark Buehrle of the Chicago White Sox doing it against the Texas Rangers on April 18.
