Tigers Vs. Twins: Peralta In Five Hole Tonight

Jim Leyland isn't letting anyone get settled in the Detroit lineup, as he sends out a slew of right-handers tonight against Minnesota southpaw Brian Duensing (2-7, 4.46). Jhonny Peralta takes over the fifth spot in the order Tuesday night, as the fourth Tigers batter in four games to hit there.
