Justin Verlander Gets Beaned By A Foul Ball (Video)
The Detroit Tigers called upon Justin Verlander to get them the important home win in Game 3 of the ALDS last night, and he delivered. However, it wasn’t all smooth sailing for Verlander. In addition to allowing two runs against in both the first and the seventh inning, the Tigers’ ace was also drilled in the shoulder by a foul ball off the bat of teammate Don Kelly while watching the game from the dugout in the eighth inning.
Luckily, his night was already done by that point, as Tigers’ reliever Jose Valverde came in to close things out in the ninth inning, securing Detroit’s 5-4 victory and the 2-1 series lead.
Here is another look at one of the few moments that didn’t go well for Verlander during last night’s game.
