Verlander leads Tigers to victory over Rays
Right hander Justin Verlander played outstandingly on Monday and allowed the Tigers to beat Tampa Bay by 5-2 in a game where he allowed just a single run for the Rays, dismissing 8 batters on the way. This also meant the seventh consecutive victory for Verlander, who has currently 19 wins this season, and is one victory short from matching Bill Gullickson, who won 20 games with the Tigers back in 1991. “I’ll say it time and again, those things are total season stats, and those things are meant to be looked at the end of the season.” He said.

Giants’ Thomas to miss remaining of season
Cornerback Terrell Thomas is most likely to miss the remaining of the current NFL season due to an injury (a tear in the knee ligament) suffered in yesterday’s win from his team, the Giants, over the Chicago Bears. The injury came just 22 seconds before the end of the first game of the match which took place at NY’s Stadium when Thomas collided with Jason Pierre-Paul during a run from both teammates. As of now, Thomas is the fourth Giants secondary player to get injured during this stage of the season.

Baltacha makes it to second round of Texas Open
Female tennis player Elena Baltacha from Britain managed to make it to the second round of the Texas Open after taking down Barbora Zahlavova Strycova from the Czech Republic, and now the number one from England is set to play Julia Goerges from Germany in the upcoming round of the competition. “I’m so pleased with that win.”I felt I was solid all the way through and that’s a good sign, especially against such a good player. Conditions have been really hot here so it’s really good preparation for the US Open because it can get humid in New York. I’m definitely looking forward to playing Georges tomorrow because she’s a talented girl and it’s another good challenge for me.” She said after the win.

Johnson signs with Dolphins
Originally a player from the Chiefs (6 seasons) who also spent a couple of seasons split between the Bengals and the Redskins (he spent most of last season sit and played only 16 games in the past 3 seasons), veteran running back Larry Johnson has just signed a deal with the Dolphins, a team that is hoping the addition of Johnson will get them more depth behind rookie Daniel Thomas and Reggie Bush.
