Verlander returning to mound after no-hitter

Monday, September 5, 2011

DETROIT (AP) ? Justin Verlander is heading back to the mound for the first time since he pitched a no-hitter.

The Detroit Tigers' ace held the Toronto Blue Jays without a hit last weekend, the second no-hitter of his career. He's scheduled to pitch Friday night in Detroit against the Kansas City Royals.

Manager Jim Leyland called last weekend's performance "one of the most precious no-hitters" he's ever seen.

Leyland says Verlander was remarkably calm during the game and he hopes that approach will carry over to Friday night's game at Comerica Park.
