Thursday: Tigers vs. Jays

Think of it as the second leg of the home-and-home, with the higher aggregate score advancing. Or think of it as Game 2 of the seven games these two teams will play this spring, way more than usual. By comparison, they usually play six times in the regular season, though they’ll have eight matchups this year.

Lineup’s pretty standard except for Ciriaco at third base, the reason for which I do not know. The Jays are starting a lefty for the second straight day, and Brent Dlugach has played a lot the last two days. Don Kelly and Kory Casto both bat left-handed.
