Sunday was originally supposed to be an off-day for the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees as the series shifted to Detroit. Due to rain on Friday pushing the final seven and a half innings of Game 1 to Saturday, Game 2 was pushed back to Sunday afternoon. The game will get started at 3:07 p.m., and after it is finished, the two teams will head to Detroit for Game 3 on Monday.

Although it's not an ideal situation to have Game 2 on what was supposed to be an off-day, the good news is the Tigers can quickly put the 9-3 loss in Game 1 behind them. The turnaround from Game 1 to Game 2 is very quick, and the panic that fans are starting to feel could be eliminated with a good start on Sunday. All the Tigers really needed from the first two games was a split, and they can achieve that with a win in Game 2.

Here is a look at the Game 2 lineup for the Tigers:

1. Austin Jackson, CF

2. Magglio Ordonez, RF

3. Delmon Young, LF

4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B

5. Victor Martinez, DH

6. Alex Avila, C

7. Jhonny Peralta, SS
