DETROIT -- Sure, you could argue that Jacob Turner had nowhere to go but up after his last start.
To recap, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Tuesday, Turner allowed seven runs on six hits while walking two and striking out one in two innings. His ERA jumped from 1.80 in one start to 10.29 in two.
"I was excited," Turner said. "Any time you dont throw the ball well, you want to get back out there as soon as you can, so I was real happy they gave me another chance.

It might have helped that Alejandro De Aza, the first batter of the game, hit a ball to deep center that Austin Jackson tracked down.
"I had to get on my horse right there real quick," Jackson said. "I wasn't sure if it was hit that hard. Kind of hesitated for a quick second but took a good route to it and was able to get back there to it."
