Jacob Turner Makes Big League Debut

DETROIT (AP/KMOX) — On a day when a native St. Louisan made his major league pitching debut, it was a former St. Louis Cardinals player who stole the show.

Dan Haren pitched a six-hitter for his second complete game against the Detroit Tigers in 25 days, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-1 victory Saturday.

Haren (11-6) walked one and struck out one while improving to 2-0 with a 0.50 ERA in two starts against the Tigers this season.

Jacob Turner (Westminster Christian Academy in St. Louis), Detroit’s top prospect, allowed two runs and three hits over 5 1-3 innings in his major league debut.

The Tigers announced before the game that the 20-year-old Turner (0-1) would return to the minors after the game, with his rotation spot going to Doug Fister. Fister and reliever David Pauley were acquired from the Mariners in a six-player trade earlier Saturday, and Fister is scheduled to start Wednesday against Texas.
