Detroit Tigers ace pitcher Justin Verlander pitched a terrific game at Comerica Park on Friday night.

The 29-year-old righthander came within two outs of his third no-hitter, allowing only one hit, Josh Harrison’s ninth-inning single in a 6-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Entering the ninth inning, Verlander had only thrown 95 pitches. He got ahead of Harrison with 1 out and a 1-2 breaking ball which was hit for a soft liner up the middle which shortstop Jhonny Peralta could not get to.

Verlander, now 5-1 on the season, threw the sixth career shutout, his 16th complete game and the 51st straight regular-season start where he pitched at least six innings.

The 29-year-old Virginia native, the 2011 American League MVP and Cy Young Award winner, has a career record of 112-58 with a 3.47 ERA and 1,283 strikeouts.

Verlander has two no-hitters in his career: June 12, 2007 against Milwaukee and May 7, 2011 vs. Toronto.
