R.I.P., Verlander unbeaten streak

Consider this our chance to pay our final respects to Justin Verlander’s amazing unbeaten streak, which reached 14 consecutive starts (regular season only) before he lost Wednesday for the first time since July 15.

Verlander won 12 straight starts last year before he took a no-decision on the final start of his regular season on Sept. 24.

Add in Verlander’s Opening Day no-decision to his streak from last year, and Verlander’s 14-game unbeaten streak included 102 innings, 68 hits allowed, 29 runs, 27 earned, for a 2.38 ERA. He walked 25 and struck out 104. Opponents hit under .200 against him.

The Tigers, meanwhile, went 13-1 in his starts. They went 50-23 in regular-season games in between his losses.

When Verlander last lost, Casper Wells and Charlie Furbush were still Tigers, and Doug Fister was some hard-luck third or fourth starter with the Mariners.

When Verlander last lost, Jose Valverde was 24-for-24 in saves.

When Verlander last lost, David Purcey was still a Tiger.

When Verlander last lost, Drew Smyly was still pitching in A-ball.

When Verlander last lost, the NFL was still locked out.

When Verlander last lost, the Tigers fell a game behind the Indians in the AL Central.

When Verlander last lost, Apple stock closed at an all-time high. It was $364.92.

If brennan and raburn can get a few hits – this is a lineup that is going to produce some big numbers today- I’d bet.

They better produce. Im going to be there and as always will be loud.

Am I wrong or Bondo´s streak between 2006 and 2007 was larger?
