Pudge starting Game 2

He’s ready to play, and let’s face it, Rabelo had a long afternoon catching Tigers pitching in the opener. Joel Zumaya is available in relief for the second game, too.

  1. Granderson, CF
  2. Polanco, 2B
  3. Sheffield, DH
  4. Ordonez, RF
  5. Guillen, 1B
  6. Rodriguez, C
  7. Perez, LF
  8. Inge, 3B
  9. Santiago, SS

Zumaya, Pudge fine

Both of them expect they’ll be available for the night game today. Zumaya’s fingernail is still attached, and he was going to try to throw some breaking balls in the bullpen this morning to see how it feels. Pudge said he’s not under the weather, that he was just feeling dizzy all day after taking some medicine to get to sleep Sunday night.

Here’s the day-game lineup:

  1. Granderson, CF
  2. Perez, RF
  3. Casey, 1B
  4. Ordonez, DH
  5. Guillen, SS
  6. Thames, LF
  7. Rabelo, C
  8. Inge, 3B
  9. Infante, 2B
