Justin Verlander K's Ohtani for 2,500th Career Strikeout

Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander reached another milestone in his magnificent 14 year career when he K'd Angels rookie phenom Shohei Ohtani for his 2,500 th big league strike out Wednesday night.

Verlander blew Ohtani away in the 9th inning to become the 33rd hurler in the big leagues to strike out at least 2,500 batters.

Verlander was masterful against the Angels, and after his complete game shutout his big league leading ERA is now at 1.05.

Topps Now has issued this card commemorating Verlander's milestone...

My All-Time favorite pitcher just keeps getting better and better.
