Justin Verlander, Jered Weaver and 8 Pitchers Capable of a No-No Every Time out
Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

It was another pretty incredible night for premier pitchers in the American League.

In fact, it was a Justin-credible night for the Detroit Tigers.

Justin Verlander struck out 14 batters in a 132-pitch, eight inning effort against the New York Yankees on Monday night, while Jered Weaver notched his major league-best 15th win with a four-hit complete game masterpiece over the Oakland A's.

The two elite pitchers couldn't be more on the opposite ends of the spectrum in terms of style—Verlander with the capability to blow hitters away with his 100 MPH heater at any time, and Weaver with the ability to completely baffle hitters with movement and location.

On any given night, when either pitcher is on top of their game, fans in the stands could easily be watching history in the making—a no-hitter.

Verlander already has two—in 2007 and last year. Weaver picked up the first no-no of his career this year against the Minnesota Twins.

Along with Weaver and Verlander, there are others in MLB with the capability of notching zeroes inning after inning every time out. Here is a look at some of them.
