Today’s Birthdays

On this Date in Tigers History

  • 2007Justin Verlander throws the sixth no-hitter in Tigers history. Hitting 100 m.p.h. on the radar gun in the ninth inning, he shuts down the Brewers with 12 strikeouts, walking four. Magglio Ordonez makes a sliding catch on a shot by Corey Hart in the seventh to keep hope alive and later catches the final out of the contest. It’s Detroit’s first no-hitter in 23 years, the second no-hitter of the MLB season and the first ever at Comerica Park. The Brewers’ Bill Hall is never retired despite batting three times against Verlander, drawing walks every time up.
  • 2000 — The Tigers acquired cash considerations from the Orioles for OF Karim Garcia.
