Well, we've seen this movie before. Tigers ace Justin Verlander took a no-hitter into the eighth inning. He got through 7 1/3 innings before Indians second baseman Orlando Cabrera broke it up with a single to center field. Verlander struck out 12 while walking just one and putting another man aboard with a hit by pitch. He ended with a two-hit shutout and garnered the victory.

The win for the Tigers gave them sole possession of first place for the first time this season. The Indians dropped out of first for the first time since the first week of the season.

This would have marked the third no-no of Verlander's career and second of the 2011 season. He also threw a no-hitter May 7 and previously threw one in 2007.
