Verlander has been much better this season, and is having his best season since 2012. He has a strikeout rate of 9.7 that is above his career rate of 8.4, and his walk rate of 2.3 B9 is lower than his career rate of 2.7. Now he faces a Minnesota Twins team that he has dominated during his career holding them to a .261 team batting average with just four homeruns and 21 RBI allowed in 234 at bats. Verlander has been brilliant over his last 10 starts holding teams to three or fewer runs in every start, while going at least seven innings in seven of those starts.
