Thursday’s lineups: Tigers at Pirates

PNC Park 005

Torii Hunter is out of the lineup, and left-handed hitting Andy Dirks is in against Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke. Interestingly, Dirks is in right field, with Avisail Garcia. Other than that, it’s the standard anti-lefty lineup.

Brandon Inge is starting at third base for Pittsburgh tonight.

With so little matchup numbers for Tigers pitchers against Locke, you’re on your own intuition or just standard lefty/righty or home/road splits for Beat the Streak. Or you can just go with the failsafe option: When in doubt, pick Cabrera.


  1. Omar Infante, 2B (0-for-2 off Locke)
  2. Andy Dirks, RF
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B
  4. Prince Fielder, 1B (1-for-2 off Locke)
