On September 13, 2011 — Justin Verlander and the Detroit Tigers continue to steamroll over opponents. Verlander picks up his 23rd win – the first pitcher to reach that total since Barry Zito in 2002 – when he pitches 7 shutout innings over the White Sox, for a 5 – 0 win. Verlander has won his last 11 starts, something no one has done for the Bengals since Hal Newhouser in 1946. The win is also Detroit’s 11th straight this month.
