Fox Sports Net Detroit will replay the June 12th Detroit Tigers - Milwaukee Brewers game, featuring pitcher Justin Verlander's first no hit game, today at noon. The performance by Verlander was the first by a Tigers pitcher at home since 1952.
Tigers play-by-play broadcaster Mario Impemba called the first Tigers no-hitter in a generation and not once did he actually mention it -- at least until after the final out. Neither he nor his broadcasting partner, Rod Allen, used the phrase "no-hitter" during Justin Verlander's dominant, 4-0 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
