Verlander impresses as Tigers beat Rockies 4-2

DETROIT (AP) Justin Verlander equaled his longest outing of the season, pitching eight solid innings to lift the Detroit Tigers to a 4-2 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Friday night.

A day after the AL Central-leading Tigers added star left-hander David Price to their rotation, Verlander (10-9) showed signs that he might be rounding into form. He allowed two runs and eight hits, striking out five without a walk. The right-hander lowered his ERA to 4.66.

Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his 22nd save in 27 chances, retiring Charlie Blackmon on a flyout with two on to end it.
