Tigers Vs. White Sox Lineups: Rick Porcello Looking For Win No. 10

The Detroit Tigers are set to face the Chicago White Sox on Monday in the opener of a huge four-game series. The Tigers, who are two games behind the White Sox in the NL Central, will send Rick Porcello to the mound at U.S. Cellular Field.

Porcello (9-11, 4.58 ERA) is looking for his tenth victory of the season, which would be the fourth consecutive year in which the 23-year-old hurler has posted double-digit wins, if he's able to do it. He'll have the usual cast of characters behind him, as well as young outfielder Avisail Garcia, who is making his fourth career start. Here are the full lineups:

Tigers

1. Austin Jackson CF
2. Ryan Raburn LF
3. Miguel Cabrera 3B
4. Prince Fielder 1B
5. Delmon Young DH
6. Jhonny Peralta SS
7. Avisail Garcia RF
8. Omar Infante 2B
9. Gerald Laird C

White Sox

1. Alejandro De Aza CF
2. Kevin Youkilis 3B
3. Dewayne Wise LF
4. Paul Konerko 1B
5. Alex Rios RF
6. A.J. Pierzynski C
7. Dayan Viciedo DH
8. Alexei Ramirez SS
9. Gordon Beckham 2B

The White Sox will counter with Jose Quintana, who is 5-4 with a 3.68 ERA. There should be a lot of contact made in the game, as neither pitcher walks, nor strikes out, many batters.
