Impact
Sanchez also had seven strikeouts and two walks. His ERA is still above 5.00, so this doesn't erase all those bad starts from April and May, but perhaps this is something for Sanchez to build upon moving forward. He is 4-7 with a 5.16 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 76 strikeouts in 82 innings.

Impact
It is is very tough to predict what we will see from Verlander this season. He is coming off a season with a 15-12 record, 4.54 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP, and there are now injury concerns. Nevertheless, his ceiling is as high as any pitcher in the game.

News
Tigers pitcher Alfredo Simon allowed a home run in the first inning, but he settled down and pitched eight great innings to help Detroit get back to its winning ways on Sunday.

Impact
The three-run homer Simon allowed was after a two-out error by Miguel Cabrera, so all three runs were unearned. The only earned run Simon yielded was on a triple in the second. After that, he was nearly lights out, allowing just five hits and two walks in eight frames, striking out seven. Sunday's victory gave Detroit the series in Chicago, which is quite an accomplishment since the Tigers lost their eighth in a row to begin the three-game set on Friday. Simon is 6-3 with a 2.76 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 51 stirkeouts in 71 2/3 innings this season.
