When Verlander didn't dominate the Yankees

Are you a Yankees fan feeling nervous about your team facing Justin Verlander in what's not-literally-a-must-win-but-pretty-much-a-must-win game? I don't blame you. Verlander is mighty intimidating.

But he's not invincible. I mean, he's immortal, but he's not quite perfect. And if you want to look back at the games in which he's lost to the Yankees, here you go:

The last time Verlander lost to the Yankees? He was pitching against Phil Hughes this June. If there were certainties in baseball, we'd all be rich off our gambling winnings instead of living in constant fear that Terry was going to find out that we were staying with our uncle and set the place on fire. Forget that I brought up gambling at all, actually.
