DETROIT (AP) — Justin Verlander held Texas hitless until the seventh inning, and the Detroit Tigers backed their ace with three home runs in a 5-0 victory over the Rangers on Sunday.

Mitch Moreland’s two-out double to right-center broke up Verlander’s bid for his third career no-hitter. Verlander (10-6) left the game after the seventh with a tight right quad muscle, having allowed just that one hit and three walks.

Verlander’s final start before the All-Star break was an encouraging one for the former American League MVP. He wasn’t overpowering, striking out only three.

Torii Hunter, Victor Martinez and Jhonny Peralta hit solo homers off Texas starter Martin Perez (3-2).
