Verlander snapped an 0-for-26 streak with a single up the middle on Saturday night.

Before last night, Justin Verlander's biggest achievement at the plate was a home run over the Green Monster... during batting practice. He topped that feat yesterday with a single against Padres starter Ian Kennedy.


Naturally, the dugout was impressed.


Verlander was all smiles as well.


To add insult to insult (if you're Ian Kennedy), Verlander singled again later on -- though he almost got thrown out from right field.
