MLB: Detroit 2, St. Louis 1 (10 innings)

June 21, 2012 at 4:30 PM

DETROIT, June 21 (UPI) -- Quintin Berry bounced a single up the middle in the 10th inning, driving in the winning run of Detroit's 2-1 interleague win Thursday over St. Louis.

Ramon Santiago and Jhonny Peralta singled with one out in the Tigers' 10th and Austin Jackson was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

The Cardinals pulled the infield in and Berry hit the first pitch he saw from Victor Marte (0-1). The ball bounced over Marte and past second to end the game.

Joaquin Benoit (1-1) got the win after one inning of one-hit, one-walk relief but about everyone pitched well for the Tigers. Detroit starter Jacob Turner allowed one run on four hits over five innings.

The Tigers bullpen gave up just two hits the rest of the way with four relievers combining for five innings, walking one and striking out six.

Cardinals starter Kyle Lohse gave up four hits in seven innings. One of the hits was a 425-foot home run by Prince Fielder in the fourth inning.

St. Louis tied the score when Turner walked Rafael Furcal with one out in the fifth. Furcal advanced to third on a Skip Schumaker doubled and scored on Matt Holliday sacrifice fly in foul ground down the right-field line.
