Tigers 9, Astros 0

HOUSTON — Justin Verlander held the Astros hitless until the seventh and the Tigers completed a four-game sweep. Carlos Peña broke up the no-hitter with a one-out single over the head of second baseman Omar Infante, who was in shallow right with the shift on. "Obviously, it's a bit of a letdown to give up a hit. Not that it was easy by any means, but I felt calm," said Verlander, who struck out nine and lowered his ERA to 1.55.
