Jacob Turner pitched his best start of the season, allowing only four base-runners in six innings pitched. He walked at least three batters in each of his last two starts, but none yesterday. All three earned runs scored by way of sacrifice fly or ground out, a consequence of poor luck and a lack of strikeouts.
