DETROIT (AP) -- It's a tough way to start a series for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Detroit's Justin Verlander pitched a no-hitter, using 100 mph fastballs, curves and a changeup to keep the Brewers guessing all night, and guessing wrong.

Brewers infielder Craig Counsell says Milwaukee batters only hit four or five balls hard all night, and the Tigers defense made sure none of them dropped in for hits.

Verlander gave up four walks but worked around them to improve his record to 7-2.

He struck out 12 batters.

Jeff Suppan took the loss and now is 7-7.

It was the first no-hitter in Detroit since Nolan Ryan of the Angels did it at Tiger Stadium in 1973.

It's the first no-hit game at Comerica Park, which opened in 2000.

Milwaukee was last no-hit on April 27 of 1994 by Scott Erickson at Minnesota.
