DETROIT (AP) — Quintin Berry hit a tiebreaking single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 10th inning, giving 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.
