I thought they were gonna throw to 3rd or cut off man in infield....was good decision by OF. Sucks but at least an RBI

Huge swing by Yuli! Can't fault the hustle there stretching for 2 either

****kkkkkkk

Why can't we get some damn run support

JV is going to have 10Ks and a few solo HRs like clockwork

I've never seen such a dominant pitcher give up so many bombs

No, the balls aren't juiced. Nope.

Like clockwork. Even JV can't avoid it.

Going to have to put up 10 it feels like.

I think it's safe to say Semien likes the outer edge.

This particular game just reminded me of playing Tech in the Fran years. Grind out a 8 or 12 play drive, kick a FG. Get a stop. Grind out a 10 play drive, kick a FG. Give up a 70 yard TD pass.

That's not on the balls in my opinion. That's on JV. The two HRs he gave up were meatball pitches and they were crushed.

Warren Spahn is the NL record holder for most HR allowed in a career. Also won 363 games.

let's see if Chirinos and Reddick can get something started

third time should be the charm...

Just can't trust this bullpen right now....Verlander needs to close it out or at least get to 8. Even with these GD homeruns he is giving up.

Unlikely. They're a dead hole. Nothing. Chumps. Black hole of the line up. Etc etc.

Felt like I read somewhere the velocity on his Fastballs is down allowing batters to crush it.

Marcus Semian, dead CF in Oakland in a cool night where the ball has not been carrying. That ball just should not be going that far. I agree they were bad pitches but still.

91 pitches. I'm not even sure we see him for the 7th.

Last punchout gave Verlander the league lead in strikeouts by 1 over Cole. He's also leading in ERA. If he can get a 'W' tonight, he'll be tied for the lead in wins as well.

Last time a pitcher led the league in all 3 categories was when Verlander himself and Kershaw both did it in 2011. It's only happened 13 times since 1950.

But please, by all means, continue to ***** about him giving up 2 runs tonight.

At 91 pitches in a tie game, if he doesn't come back out my dog better look out.
