Quintin Berry hit a tie-breaking RBI single in the 10th inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday.
Ramon Santiago and Jhonny Peralta hit one-out singles off Victor Marte (0-1 ), who then grazed Austin Jackson's jersey with a pitch. Berry followed with a base hit up the middle through a drawn-in infield. Joaquin Benoit (1-1 ) got the win. The Detroit bullpen shut out St. Louis after Jacob Turner allowed a run and four hits in five innings.
Kyle Lohse allowed a run and four hits in seven innings for the Cardinals. Prince Fielder homered for the Tigers.
The 21-year-old Turner was recalled from Triple-A Toledo to make his season debut. Left-hander Drew Smyly has been out because of a blister on his left middle finger. Turner kept the Tigers in the game while their offense struggled. He walked five and struck out three.
