Justin Verlander No-Hitting Angels Through Seventh Inning

The Detroit Tigers' Justin Verlander has been one of the most dominant pitchers in all of baseball in 2011, already with a no-hitter to his name this season already. But Justin is looking to make history once again as he has another no-hitter going through the seventh inning against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim at Comerica Park. 

Verlander threw his second career no-hitter against the Toronto Blue Jays on May 7 during a 9-0 Tigers victory, and narrowly missed throwing a perfect game after he allowed a walk in the eighth inning to rookie J.P. Arencibia on Verlander's 12th pitch of the at bat. Justin threw 108 pitches during his outing, striking out four Blue Jays along the way. 

If he can navigate his way to his second no-hitter of the year Verlander would join a short list of players to throw multiple no-hitters in one season:

Virgil Trucks, Detroit Tigers, 1952 
Allie Reynolds, New York Yankees, 1951 
Nolan Ryan, California Angels, 1973 
Johnny Vander Meer, Cincinnati Reds, 1938

Verlander has given up two walks thus far, but has struck out seven and thrown 92 pitches on the day already.
