Tigers Vs. Cardinals: Detroit Wins On Walk-Off Single By Quintin Berry

Without much offense all day, the Detroit Tigers were able to win the series finale against the St. Louis Cardinals with a walk-off single by Quintin Berry in the 10th inning. The 2-1 win gave Detroit their fourth straight series victory.

Kyle Lohse shut down the Tigers for seven innings on Thursday, allowing just four hits. A home run by Prince Fielder in the fourth inning was all the scoring they could muster against Lohse.

But Jacob Turner, in his first start of the season, was able to match Lohse on the hill. Turner only went five innings, but he also allowed four hits and a run.

The game remained tied from the fifth inning on until the Tigers batted in the bottom of the 10th.

With one out, Ramon Santiago and Jhonny Peralta hit back-to-back singles. Then Austin Jackson was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Berry ended the game with his single to shallow center.

Detroit is now just one game under .500 and will travel to Pittsburgh for its final interleague series of the season.

Tigers Vs. Cardinals Final Score: Detroit Opens Series With 6-3 Win

The Detroit Tigers opened a three-game interleague series against the St. Louis Cardinals with a 6-3 win at Comerica Park on Tuesday night.

Tigers' ace Justin Verlander earned his second straight win giving up three runs in seven innings on the mound to move his record to 7-4 on the season. Verlander spread out five hits and four walks while just striking out three as the Cardinals finally scored a run in sixth inning and then took advantage of an error by left fielder Quentin Berry which allowed two more runs to score in the seventh.

Left-handed reliever Phil Coke earned his first save of the season as he combined Joaquin Benoit to keep the Cardinals scoreless in the final two innings.

The Tigers gave Verlander all of the run support he would need in the first two innings thanks to Delmon Young's RBI single in the first inning. Center fielder Austin Jackson then came through with a two-run double as part of a three-run second inning.

Young finished the game two hits an two RBIs as the Tigers were able to chase St. Louis starter Lance Lynn after he gave up five runs in the first five innings. The loss dropped Lynn's record to 10-3 on the season.

The two teams resume the series on Wednesday night.
