Saturday: Tigers at Orioles

Leyland said he’s load up his lineup with right-handed hitters against Orioles left-hander Brian Matusz, and he wasn’t kidding. Aside from first baseman Don Kelly, it’s an entirely right-handed lineup, including Scott Sizemore as the designated hitter.

On the Orioles side, Adam Jones gets the night off. We also learned today that Brian Roberts won’t play tonight or Sunday, so his season is done.
