Turnbull did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's 5-4, 11-inning loss to the Marlins, as he allowed three runs over five innings. He gave up seven hits and two walks while striking out four. Turnbull wasn't particularly sharp, as he put plenty of men on base and needed 92 pitches to navigate his five innings. The righty earlier rattled off four consecutive stellar starts, in which he posted a 0.75 ERA and 2-0 record across 24 innings, but his last three outings have resulted in no quality starts or wins and a 3.68 ERA. Turnbull will look to get back into the win column his next time out Sunday against the Mets on the road.
Turnbull (2-3) allowed six runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out six across four innings to take the loss Thursday against the Athletics. Turnbull coughed up a grand slam in the third inning after allowing four of the first seven batters he faced to reach base. However, the frame was also doomed by a throwing error by Niko Goodrum and a wild pitch by Turnbull that also scored a run. More positively, he continues to show the ability to miss bats, as even in this poor outing he managed 13 swinging strikes on 85 total pitches. He'll look to bounce back in his next start, currently scheduled for Tuesday against Miami.
Turnbull allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out six in 5.2 innings Saturday against the Twins. He did not factor into the decision. It wasn't Turnbull's best performance of the year, as his four walks tied a season high, but he kept the Tigers in a game which they would eventually win. His ERA rose only slightly and now sits at 2.42 on the season. His next start will come Thursday against Oakland.
Turnbull allowed one run on six hits with seven strikeouts and one walk across seven innings in a no-decision against the Royals on Sunday. The 26-year-old pitched more than well enough to earn a victory, but the Tigers offense gave him just two runs in support, and then the bullpen blew the one-run lead in the eighth. The no-decision was disappointing, but Turnbull has been great lately, posting a 1.13 ERA in his last four outings. Overall, Turnbull is 2-2 with a 2.31 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 38 strikeouts in 39 innings this year. He will look to keep his hot streak going Saturday at the Twins.
Turnbull (2-2) tossed six innings of one-run ball to earn the win Tuesday against the Phillies. He gave up three hits and two walks while striking out five. He also threw three wild pitches. Turnbull was effectively wild as he picked up his second straight win. Three wild pitches gets you into trouble on many nights, but the 26-year-old limited the damage elsewhere and held a strong Philadelphia lineup to just a lone run, in hitter-friendly Citizens Bank Park no less. Turnbull has been a pleasant surprise for the Tigers, as he now has a 2.53 ERA on the year. The righty will look to keep it going in his next turn, which is scheduled for Sunday against a struggling Royals team.
