Improved Verlander helps Tigers rebound from rough stretch

DETROIT (AP) After allowing seven runs to the Cleveland Indians on May 3, Justin Verlander took to Twitter - always a risky move for an athlete, especially one coming off a frustrating performance.

"I'm going to dominate soon! I'm close," his tweet said. "Doubt me if you want. We'll see."

Since then, Verlander has backed up his bold words, allowing just four runs in four starts to help the Tigers bounce back from an awful stretch earlier in the month. Although Detroit is only at .500, Verlander and Miguel Cabrera have given the Tigers a boost at a time when it looked like 2016 might turn into another lost season.
