With each passing start, Justin Verlander is making his 2018 season look even better than his MVP campaign of 2011. The Houston Astros right-hander was utterly dominant on Wednesday while tossing a five-hit shutout of the Los Angeles Angels , and added to his growing Hall of Fame case by collecting career strikeout No. 2,500 during the Astros' 2-0 victory.
