Tuesday: Tigers vs. Royals

Same Tigers lineup as they had Monday, but the batting order has a slight tweak. Ramon Santiago bats eighth, with Don Kelly moved down to ninth. Jim Leyland said a little bit ago that he decided to get the switch-hitting bat further up.

There’s a line showers in Indiana and Ohio right now that looks like it’s headed this way. How much it dampens downtown and how long it lasts remains to be seen.

TIGERS

  1. Austin Jackson, CF
  2. Brennan Boesch, RF
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B
  4. Prince Fielder, 1B
  5. Andy Dirks, DH
  6. Alex Avila, C
  7. Jhonny Peralta, SS
  8. Ramon Santiago, 2B
  9. Don Kelly, LF

great lineup tonight – great defensively and offensively

looks like the heavy rains will miss DET to the southeast.

If it’s the line of showers we had here in KY, it should be an hour delay.

This should be a good pitching matchup. Both guys have been bombed once.

95 mph? not bad

Man, is it possible to bat around in under 20 pitches? What a start!!

Have we had the ninth guy bat in the first inning this year???

Sorry ,but it feels good when happens to the other team

Great play by Kelly
Says the fan that wanted him benched last week

Stealing bases and bunting . 5-0 over? And with a pitcher that needs a GPS to find home?

How many steals for AJ in the last five days. Any pep talks recently??

What happened to Dirks?

Not sure. Dave B. do you know about Dirks??

hamstring… rod said looked bad enough that he might land on the DL
