Tigers Vs. Yankees: Lineups Posted For Game 1 Of ALDS

The first pitch of Game 1 of the ALDS between the Detroit Tigers and New York Yankees is nearing, and both teams have announced their lineups for Friday night's matchup. First, the Tigers lineup:

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. Ryan Raburn, 2B

8. Jhonny Peralta, SS

9. Brandon Inge, 3B

Pitching: Justin Verlander

The Tigers decided to move Peralta all the way down to eighth in the lineup because he is 1-for-17 all-time against CC Sabathia, as pointed out by the Free Press. Normally he bats ahead of Raburn and Avila, but Jim Leyland is playing the matchup by moving him down.

Here's the Yankees lineup:

1. Derek Jeter, SS

2. Curtis Granderson, CF

3. Robinson Cano, 2B

4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B

5. Mark Teixeira, 1B

6. Nick Swisher, RF

7. Jorge Posada, DH

8. Russell Martin, C

9. Brett Gardner, LF

Pitching: CC Sabathia
