ALDS Game 1: Tigers at Yankees

This is the lineup you would expect against a left-handed starter. No surprises needed. It does include Brandon Inge, who is batting .190 (11-for-58) off Sabathia but whose seven walks give him an on-base percentage of .299.


  1. Austin Jackson, CF (4-for-14, double, triple, HR off Sabathia)
  2. Magglio Ordonez, RF (19-for-71, 5 doubles, 3 HRs)
  3. Delmon Young, LF (3-for-24, seven K’s)
  4. Miguel Cabrera, 1B (9-for-16, 2 HR, 11 RBIs)
  5. Victor Martinez, DH (6-for-25, 2 HR, 3 RBIs)
  6. Alex Avila, C (1-for-7, 3 K’s)
  7. Ryan Raburn, 2B (4-for-23, 2 doubles, 3 RBIs, 8 K’s)
  8. Jhonny Peralta, SS (1-for-17, 3 walks, 5 K’s)
  9. Brandon Inge, 3B (11-for-58, 1 HR, 3 RBIs, 15 K’s)

P: Justin Verlander


  1. Derek Jeter, SS (10-for-28 off Verlander)
  2. Curtis Granderson, CF (1-for-6, HR)
  3. Robinson Cano, 2B (4-for-23)
  4. Alex Rodriguez, 3B (4-for-21, HR, 4 RBIs)
  5. Mark Teixeira, 1B (3-for-22, HR, 3 RBIs, 7 K’s)
  6. Nick Swisher, RF (8-for-48)
  7. Jorge Posada, DH (7-for-21, 5 RBIs)
  8. Russell Martin, C (2-for-5)
  9. Brett Gardner, LF (3-for-8)

P: CC Sabathia


I must say I am surprised to see Peralta batting 8th behind Raburn.
I am not surprised at all with Inge in the lineup and in fact, expected that along with every other knowledgeable fan.

def. do not agree with peralta batting 8th.

well when you compare a .173 BA to a .059 BA it does make more sense hah

Skip has said inge vs lefties and betimit against righties

then again…wilson is batting .600 against CC in 5 at bats

With those numbers, maybe neither team will score off the starters. This has the possibility of being a classic.
