Tigers vs. Athletics lineups: Detroit looks to sweep behind Anibal Sanchez

The Detroit Tigers can close out the Athletics Tuesday night in Oakland after taking both games of the ALDS at Comerica Park. The Tigers will run out the same lineup as in Game 2, and the A's will only swap starting catchers, using Game 1 starter Derek Norris instead of George Kottaras.

Both teams send postseason novices to the hill. Right-hander Anibal Sanchez (4-6, 3.74), a midseason acquisition from Miami, starts for Detroit. Left-hander Brett Anderson (4-2, 2.57) will toe the rubber for Oakland.

Lineups as follows:
