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, to go along with five strikeouts. 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.
Turnbull had been ahead of Ross in the Tigers' pitching order last week, but the team elected to swap the two for the two-game set in Philadelphia, likely due to the impending birth of the latter's child. The change was for naught after Ross ultimately needed to leave the team earlier than anticipated, so Turnbull now tentatively lines up for a two-start week, assuming the Tigers wait until next week to add a fifth rotation member to the mix to replace the injured Jordan Zimmermann (elbow). Turnbull's second turn is set to come Sunday against the Royals in Detroit.
Turnbull (1-2) tossed five scoreless innings to grab the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox. He gave up three hits and four walks, while striking out two.
Taking on the Red Sox at Fenway Park is no easy task, but Turnbull was up for it. The righty didn't dominate, as he needed 94 pitches to get through five innings and he struck out just the two hitters, but he was able to effectively scatter baserunners and not give up any extra-base hits. Turnbull will take a stellar 2.77 into his next start, which isn't expected to come until May 4 as the Tigers look to get their rotation lined up following the doubleheader.
Turnbull will start Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Red Sox, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.
Turnbull will follow Matthew Boyd, who is scheduled to start the first game of Tuesday's twin bill. Through four starts this season, the 26-year-old right-hander owns a 3.43 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 10.3 K/9 across 21 innings.
