Austin Jackson finished 3-for-4 with a homer and three RBI to back eight stellar innings from Justin Verlander as the Tigers clipped the Cubs, 5-3. Verlander fanned eight and allowed just two runs on five hits to improve to 6-and-4 on the season. He has won 17-of-23 career Interleague starts. The reigning AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner had gone four starts without a win, his longest such stretch since 2009. Jose Valverde gave up a run in the ninth, but held on to register his 13th save as the Tigers took two-of-three at Wrigley Field. Darwin Barney, Luis Valbuena and David DeJesus all knocked runs for Chicago. Travis Wood gave up three runs in six-and-two-thirds frames to absorb the loss for the Cubs, who are just 3-and-10 in June.
