    After collecting his MLB-leading 12th win Saturday, Justin Verlander wasn't ready to reflect on how far he's come this season.

    But the 39-year-old did take a moment to note how his almost two-year absence from the game after Tommy John surgery has made him appreciate his success a bit more.

    "I've said the word perspective here a lot, and I don't take it for granted," he said. "I think in the past I took a lot of things for granted, my health and some success when I was young, certainly not since I've been an Astro. But I think age and going through some stuff, has a way to help you grow up and realize some real positives that maybe you wouldn't have taken a moment to realize before."

    Verlander struck out 10 in six sharp innings and the Houston Astros beat the Oakland Athletics 5-0.
