Turnbull tossed six scoreless innings but did not factor into the decision in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Royals. He allowed four hits and two walks while striking out five. Turnbull departed after his six stellar innings with a 2-0 lead, but the Royals promptly scored once in the seventh and twice in the eighth to saddle the righty with a no-decision. Run support has been lacking for Turnbull, as he's allowed just three runs in his last two starts combined (11 innings pitched), but the Tigers scored a total of two runs in those games. As a result, the 26-year-old is carrying a 2.78 ERA though he only has a 3-5 record to show for it. Turnbull will look for some better luck in his next start, which is scheduled for Sunday against Cleveland.
Turnbull (3-5) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks over five innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Rays. He struck out four. Turnbull was decent but got no run support, as Charlie Morton and Oliver Drake combined to shut out the Tigers. The 26-year-old righty has been mostly solid this year, posting a 3.01 ERA and 68 strikeouts across 71.2 innings of work. However, Detroit's anemic offense caps Turnbull's potential. He'll look for a little more run support and his fourth win in his next start Tuesday against the Royals.
Turnbull (3-4) picked up the win after allowing one run on five hits and a walk while striking out two over six innings Friday against the Braves.

The 26-year-old had spent the last three days on the bereavement list but didn't miss a turn in the rotation while he was away from the team. Following Friday's impressive start, Turnbull sports a 2.84 ERA and 1.26 WHIP with a 64:22 K:BB through 66.2 innings this season.
Turnbull was reinstated from the bereavement list as expected Friday ahead of his scheduled start against the Braves. Turnbull missed the minimum three days on the bereavement list and won't miss a turn in the rotation or even see his start pushed back. He's allowed seven runs in 12 innings over his last two starts but still has a strong 2.97 ERA on the season.
Turnbull will be activated off the bereavement list to start Friday's game against the Braves.
