Kate Upton is reportedly romancing Detroit Tigers pitching ace Justin Verlander — and taking some heat after he had an inning of hideous pitching Tuesday night during the 2012 MLB All-Star Game.

Verlander, 29, gave up four hits, five earned-runs and walked two, resulting in a 5-0 deficit after his first, and only, inning of play.

Baseball insiders are blaming the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model, 20, for the bad performance after the two were spotted together in Detroit over the weekend. Jinx or not, Upton has the power to distract most men with her sexy curves and bikini bod.

Rumors about the pair began swirling after they were spotted last Thursday night in Michigan, where they attended an Aerosmith concert together.

Following the show, they joined a few pals and went bar-hopping, even stopping by Coyote Joe’s.

Upton has been single for some time, after being linked to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez earlier this year.
