striking out five to record the 14th complete game of his career, but the
first since May 16, 2010 as a member of the Cleveland Indians.

Cardinals snapped a two-game slide.
Rick Porcello (4-5) took the loss despite scattering 10 hits, a walk and two
runs over seven full frames.
Austin Jackson knocked in the lone run for Detroit, which saw its three-game
win streak come to an end.
