Verlander has limited the A’s to a two-out double in the first and a two-out walk in the second through three. Brandon Moss drew the walk in the second, only to get thrown out trying to advance to second on what would have been a wild pitch.
As successful as Verlander has been, the A’s have still forced him throw 44 pitches through three, something that might pay off in time. Still, they probably can’t afford to give up any additional runs. Verlander hasn’t allowed more than two runs in any of his last five starts.
