Detroit Tigers beat Kansas City Royals 2-1 over Turk Bomb

KANSAS CITY, MO – Spencer Turkelson, the rookie upstart for the Detroit Tigers, looks to the bunker.

“Come darling!” He cried.

The 22-year-old had just crushed a second-tier goal from Kansas City Royals player Brad Keeler in two home runs to leave in the seventh. He celebrated at home with 38-year-old Miguel Cabrera, having scored a double of 599 and 2,995 career goals.

“That was pretty cool,” Turkelson said. “A really special moment. This half doesn’t happen without a double.”
