MINNEAPOLISJustin Verlander is baseball’s first 20-game winner this season.

It won’t go down as one of his best starts, and it did not come easy, but Verlander picked up his eighth straight victory Saturday as the Tigers beat the Twins, 6-4, at Target Field.

“It feels great — what a team win,” Verlander said. “I think that emulated all we go through during the season. There’s been times I’ve picked these guys up, there’s been times they’ve picked me up. To get to 20 at this point in the season, obviously you can’t do it all on your own. You’ve got to have a lot of help. These guys have helped me along the way, and today was just another example of that.”
