Verlander dominates Twins in Astros' 7-1 win

HOUSTON (AP) Watching Wade Miley go right at the Minnesota Twins' lineup the night before inspired Justin Verlander.

The right-hander followed suit and pitched eight dominant innings, and Carlos Correa, Michael Brantley and Josh Reddick all homered to lead the Houston Astros to a 7-1 win over the Twins on Wednesday night.

"He's done this for over a decade," Astros manager AJ Hinch said. "He knows how to finish his outings strong and control the game when he's got the lead. I've said before, he's a good pitcher all the time, he's a really tough guy to come back on when he has the lead."
