DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The Tigers gave up a tie game, allowing two runs in the sixth and the L.A. bats got stronger from there as the Detroit Tigers go on to lose to the Los Angeles Angels 5-1 on Saturday.
As heard on 97.1 The Ticket – a story book start to the day with Jacob Turner making his start with the Tigers and giving up just two runs through just over five innings.
Dan Haren pitched a six-hitter for his second complete game against the Detroit Tigers in 25 days, leading the Los Angeles to victory.
Haren (11-6) walked one and struck out one. In two starts against Detroit, he is 2-0 with a 0.50 ERA.
Jacob Turner, Detroit’s top prospect, allowed two runs and three hits in 5 1-3 innings of his major league debut. He walked three and struck out six. Turner (0-1) did allow five stolen bases, the most by a pitcher in his first game since Brian Barber allowed six for the Cardinals on Aug. 12, 1995.
