Justin Verlander is Now 0-3 with a 5.14 ERA For His Career in the World Series

Justin Verlander has started three World Series games in his career – two in 2006 as a flame-throwing rookie and Game 1 last night. Here’s how he’s done:

vs. St. Louis 2006, loss: 5.0 innings, 6 hits, 7 runs, 6 ER, 2 HR, 2 BB, 8 K
vs. St. Louis 2006, loss: 6.0 innings, 6 hits, 3 runs, 1 ER, 0 HR, 3 BB, 4 k
vs. San Francisco 2012, loss: 4.0 innings, 6 hits, 5 runs, 5 ER, 2 HR, 1 BB, 4 k

Combined ERA in those three games: 5.14.

Sample size!

Verlander – who wasn’t as quick to blame the week-long layoff the way everyone else did –  is expected to pitch Game 5 on full rest.
