Astros Ace Justin Verlander spoke to Fanatics View following series split vs. Texas Rangers.

Verlander spoke on his pitching style and limiting home-runs on the mound.

“I can’t change the way I pitch, I’m a flyball pitcher. If i start trying to be a sinker-ball pitcher, It doesn’t work. I know those guys hit a lot of homers, but my goal is to miss as many bats as i can – that’s what the game’s turned into.”

In addition, Verlander spoke on the Astros come-back after losing the first two of the 4-game set.

“That was a huge last two games”, he said. “The Rangers came out hot, and for us to be able to come out with a split, that’s what good ball-clubs do.”

Finally, Verlander was asked whether he would miss pitching at Globe-Life Park in Arlington.

“No – lost in the playoffs here, had some tough starts here, no”, he responded.

Scheduled to open in March of 2020, Globe Life Field looks to be a breath of fresh air for the hard throwing righty, putting his tough outings at Globe Life Park behind him.
