Jacob Turner allowed 1 run over 5 innings, then the Detroit bullpen shutdown the cards. Octavio Dotel, Phil Coke, Brayan Villarreal and Joaquin Benoit closed it out.
In the 4th inning, Prince Fielder absolutley CRUSHED a 425-foot 'tater and executed a sweet-ass bat flip to punctuate his 11th homer of the year.

“Not really. Too much shit, man. People need to leave us alone and let us play baseball. It’s starting to become the shithole it used to be. Playing here used to be so much fun. [Now] every day is something new, not related to baseball. People need to leave us alone. Every day is something new, some drama, some more shit. I’m tired of that, man. I’m here to play baseball, man.”
