Verlander said that having a no-hitter earleir in his career helped him. “In the ninth inning, I was a lot more calm,” Verlander said.
Verlander explained why he didn’t look that excited after completing the no-hitter. “I was focusing so much on being calm, when I got the last out, it kind of carried over,” Verlander said. “Right after the game, you’re still kind of in game mode.”
Verlander also weighed in Aroldis Chapman hitting 106 mph with his pitches. He thinks it could be legit. “The game is changing,” Verlander said. “The human body is changing. So I’d say it’s possible.”
