News: Verlander surrendered five runs to the Dodgers in the first inning Tuesday, then pitched five more one-hit innings to pick up an improbable eighth win of the season. Impact: He rebounded very nicely from the awful start, and retired 13 straight batters after the first inning, finishing with a line of five runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts in six innings. It's been a disappointing season for the Tigers' former ace, but on Tuesday he went from terrible to excellent over the span of six innings. He'll make his final start before the All-Star break on Sunday in Kansas City, and then will get to actually rest during All-Star weekend for the first time in years.(RotoWire, )

Impact: Verlander started the day looking like the pitcher who has been searching for his mechanics for most of the season before he got his act together somewhat. Verlander wasn't sharp, allowing nine hits, but he didn't walk a batter. (STATS, 5:27pm)
