Astros pitcher Justin Verlander probably had quite the face of surprise when he looked at this bill.

Maybe you've been overcharged at restaurant before for a drink you didn't order or for those apps that never arrived.

But have you ever been overcharged by seven figures and had the added bonus of being called a "Dodger killer" tacked on all for beating Los Angeles in the World Series?

No one?

Well, Astros star pitcher Justin Verlander just had the honor of being the first person for that to ever happen to when a bill from a waiter at the Cabana Cafe in the Beverly Hills Hotel arrived with a $1 million add-on.

The original bill included pancakes, salads and drinks, which came out to $181 before the waiter added on the extra funds. Then, the total came out to be $1,095,198.20 with tax.

Not to worry, the original tab was picked up by the hotel.

"The manager came over and we ended up laughing about it," Verlander said. "They actually ended up comping the meal. Everyone was talking about how expensive the pancakes were and the salad. It was comped. It worked out well for both sides."

Former tennis player Mardy Fish, who was with Verlander, advised against eating with the pitcher to avoid the hefty price tag. 

Verlander helped lead the Astros to a 2017 World Series win in Game 7 over the Dodgers.

He's in Los Angeles for a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels. This year, Verlander is 13–8 with a 2.72 ERA and 229 strikeouts.
