Justin Verlander Throws 3rd Career No-Hitter

Justin Verlander throws third career no-hitter

Justin Verlander threw his third no-hitter of his Hall of Fame career against the Blue Jays on Sunday.

This was his second coming against the Blue Jays at the Rogers Centre, his last was back in May 2011.

Verlander becomes only the sixth pitcher in Major League history to throw three no-hitters. He joins Nolan Ryan, Bob Feller, Cy Young, Sandy Koufax and Larry Corcoran in that illustrious list.

His first no-htter came in 2007 at Comerica Park in Detroit. The Astros won the game 2-0 on a 2-run home run from Abraham Toro in the top of the ninth.

Verlander threw 120 pitches, 79 for strikes while striking out 14. He was only a walk away from a perfect game. With the win, Verlander improves his record to 17-5, while helping the Astros move to within a half-game of the Yankees for home-field advantage in the American League playoffs.
