Verlander Takes No No Into 7th, Injures Quad

[1]Justin Verlander’s no-hit bid was finally over in the seventh inning.

Verlander fell seven outs short of his third career no-hitter, but the Detroit ace looked sharp in his final start before the All-Star break, and the Tigers backed him with three home runs in a 5-0 victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday.

Mitch Moreland’s two-out double to right-center broke up Verlander’s bid. Verlander (10-6) left the game after the seventh with a tight right quad muscle, having allowed just that one hit and three walks.
