Quintin Berry hit a game winning RBI single in the 10th inning to give the Detroit Tigers a 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals this afternoon. Victor Marte took his first loss of the season after giving up one out singles to Ramon Santiago and Jhonny Peralta. Marte then hit 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 the Cardinals after St. Charles, MO. native 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. His lone mistake was a home run to Prince Fielder in the third. The Cardinals tied the game up in the fourth with a sac fly RBI from Matt Holliday.
The Cardinals managed ten hits and left ten runners stranded as the club falls to 35-35 on the year.
