[tps_title]#5 – 2012/2013 Verlander OWNS the A’s[/tps_title]
Call it what you want, but Justin Verlander has had the A’s number the last two postseasons. In 4 appearances, including both ALDS Game 5’s, Verlander has allowed 1 run, a home run to Coco Crisp in the first inning of Game 1 of the 2012 ALDS. He struck out 43 A’s in both series combined, went 3-0 in 4 starts, and has an ERA of 0.29 the last two postseasons. It’s a shame the A’s lost the Wild-Card game in the 12th last night, otherwise MAYBE JV would have gotten another chance to beat them up in the ALCS this year.
