TORONTO - Justin Verlander continues to amaze as he tossed the third no-hitter of his career on Sunday in the Houston Astros 2-0 victory at Toronto. He finished the game with 14 strikeouts and lowered his ERA to a league-leading 2.56. He's 17-5 this season.

It's the 13th no-hitter in franchise history for the Astros and the second since the trade deadline, following the combined four-pitcher no-hitter the team tossed in August. 

 

 

After striking out the first batter of the game, Bo Bichette, Verlander issued a walk to the second batter he faced, Cavan Biggio. He then proceeded to retire the final 26 batters of the game.
