Tigers manager Jim Leyland said Justin Verlander will not be brought back on short rest to start Game 4 of the World Series.

"He's coming back in Game 5, I hope," Leyland said. Verlander threw 98 pitches in Game 1, which is a relatively light workload for him. Of course, they came over just four innings, so his outing was far from a stress-free one. The Tigers will stick with Max Scherzer for Game 4.
