Tigers Vs. Blue Jays: Starting Lineups For Wednesday's Game

Sporting a frustratingly-high 7.97 earned-run average in four starts with the Tigers since being acquired from the Marlins, Detroit right-hander Anibal Sanchez hopes to get his season back on track on Wednesday evening, in game two of his team's series with Toronto.

Facing the exact same opponent that roughed him up for five earned runs on eight hits back in his July 28th Tigers debut, Sanchez will need to have much better command of his pitches in order pull himself out of this bothersome slump. Instead of featuring a near-identical lineup to the one that Sanchez struggled with only weeks ago however, Blue Jays manager John Farrell has opted to send out just four hitters from the team's win over Detroit back in July. Rajai Davis, Colby Rasmus, Edwin Encarnacion and Kelly Johnson are the only holdovers.

Here are the starting lineups for game two:

Tigers
1. Austin Jackson - CF
2. Omar Infante - 2B
3. Miguel Cabrera - 3B
4. Prince Fielder - 1B
5. Jhonny Peralta - SS
6. Delmon Young - DH
7. Andy Dirks - LF
8. Jeff Baker - RF
9. Alex Avila - C
Anibal Sanchez - SP

Blue Jays
1. Rajai Davis - LF
2. Colby Rasmus - CF
3. Edwin Encarnacion - DH
4. David Cooper - 1B
5. Moises Sierra - RF
6. Yorvit Torrealba - C
7. Kelly Johnson - 2B
8. Mike McCoy - 3B
9. Adeiny Hechavarria - SS
Aaron Laffey - SP
