Jhoulys Chacin got into a pitching duel with Justin Verlander & walked away with Angels win

Chacin had a complete game, with ten strikeouts under his belt. Unreal. Angels 5  Tigers 1 Today's Memorial Day contest between the Tigers and the Angels was as straight up pitching duel, no two ways about it.
