DETROIT (AP) — Justin Verlander's no-hit bid was finally over in the seventh inning — and before refocusing, the Detroit ace saw his shortstop do something amusing.
"When the double was hit, and the ball came back in, everybody started cheering," Verlander said. "(Jhonny) Peralta caught the ball and looked up at the board checking the hits. That's when I knew he didn't know. I was like, 'Come on, Jhonny.'"
