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.
