Spencer Turnbull struck out four batters in four innings of work Sunday as the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 5-1.

In addition to the four strikeouts, Turnbull gave up a run on three hits and walked two batters.

"Felt pretty good," Turnbull said. "Couple quick innings, normal inning in the third and a little rough fourth inning, but overall felt it was a positive outing."

Turnbull got some defensive help from outfielder Victor Reyes, who made a diving catch in the second inning, and Robbie Grossman, who threw out a Baltimore runner at home plate in the third inning.

Zack Short and Akil Baddoo homered for Detroit in the eighth inning.
