On the heels of his 2006 rookie season, Verlander was on his way to stardom. This game was the one that solidified his candidacy for his first All-Star Game just weeks later.
Verlander's no-hit bid began to pick up steam when he got through the sixth inning on just 12 pitches. The crowd really began to stir throughout Comerica Park in the seventh inning, when right fielder Magglio Ordoñez made a sliding catch on a one-out Corey Hart line-drive that surely looked like it was about to break up the no-no.
JV settled in to face the minimum over his last 13 batters, delivering the Tigers' first no-hitter since Jack Morris in 1984. He racked up a then-career high 12 strikeouts and issued just 12 walks.
Verlander's third career no-hitter -- with the Astros against Blue Jays last September -- will stream at noon.
Other notable games on the docket include the 2016 World Series Game 7 classic between the Cubs and Indians, which saw Chicago end its 108-year title drought; Boston's 2004 ALCS Game 4 thriller that led to an epic series comeback; and Luis Gonzalez's legendary walk-off to give the Diamondbacks the 2001 World Series.
