First-place Tigers rally to down Rangers at home

BY foxsports • May 21, 2009

Justin Verlander struggled for one inning Wednesday night and that wasn't quite enough for the Texas Rangers.

After not allowing a hit for the first four innings, the Detroit Tigers' ace threw 41 pitches in the fifth. Unfortunately for the Rangers, the last one became a bases-loaded groundout by David Murphy, allowing Verlander to escape with the score tied at 1.
