The Detroit Tigers and Baltimore Orioles are finishing their season series today in Baltimore. Earlier this week, both benches cleared after Bud Norris hit Torii Hunter with a pitch. Today Justin Verlander got revenge when he threw behind Nelson Cruz with the Tigers up 5-0 in the 4th inning.
Following his act of manliness, Verlander returned for the 5th inning and surrendered 5 earned runs – capped off by a 3-run homer off the bat of Nelson Cruz.
