Supermodel Kate Upton took to Twitter to vent her fury yesterday after fiance Justin Verlander controversially missed out on a Cy Young Award, which is given annually to the best pitchers in Major League Baseball.

Detroit Tigers pitcher Verlander was pipped for the prestigious honor by Boston Red Sox right hander Rick Porcello in a vote that went down to the wire.

Porcello won even though Verlander earned more first-place votes on the ballot, with 14 to 8. The 33-year-old missed out on the prize because two baseball writers ignored Verlander on their five-pitcher ballots, skewing the results to give Porcello victory by 137 to 132 points.

While Porcello celebrated an award he described as ‘unbelievable,’ Upton could not hide her disgust at Verlander’s near-miss. “Hey I thought I was the only person allowed to f**k @JustinVerlander ?! What 2 writers didn’t have him on their ballot?” Upton wrote. The 24-year-old then turned to Porcello to denigrate his achievement in a separate Tweet. “Sorry Rick but you didn’t get any 1st place votes? you didn't win. @MLB keep up with the times and fire those writers,” she added.
