For the second straight season, Justin Verlander had a terrific curveball on Opening Day. "I was very pleased with my curveball," Verlander said after he didn't allow a run in five innings Monday against the Twins. "It was kind of average-to-subpar all spring. I started playing catch the other day and I found something, and I was able to carry it over into the game today. I got some big outs with it."
