Friday: Tigers vs. Orioles

I’m off today. Chris Vannini and Matt Slovin will have the Tigers coverage this weekend from Comerica Park. Still, I figured I’d post the lineups for today. The Tigers lineup should look awfully familiar from yesterday. The Orioles lineup features former Tiger (even if he never played a regular-season game in a Detroit uniform) Steve Lombardozzi at second base, but no J.J. Hardy, who is being rested with back spasms.

Weatherwise, a day that began with dense fog this morning turned to midday rain, which delayed first pitch until 1:15pm. Topping it all off, there’s a wind advisory for this afternoon. This seems like the true April in the D.

Here are the lineups for today’s series opener against the O’s:

TIGERS (career numbers off Miguel Gonzalez)

  1. Ian Kinsler, 2B (2-for-7, double, HR, walk)
  2. Torii Hunter, RF (1-for-3)
  3. Miguel Cabrera, 1B (2-for-6, HR, K)
  4. Victor Martinez, DH (1-for-3)
  5. Austin Jackson, CF (1-for-1, HR, 2 walks)
  6. Alex Avila, C (1-for-4, 2 walks, K)
  7. Nick Castellanos, 3B
  8. Andrew Romine, SS
  9. Rajai Davis, LF (2-for-10, HR, K)

P: Anibal Sanchez

ORIOLES (career numbers off Sanchez)

  1. Nick Markakis, RF (1-for-3, double)
  2. David Lough, LF (0-for-4, walk)
  3. Adam Jones, CF (2-for-3)
  4. Chris Davis, 1B
  5. Nelson Cruz, DH (1-for-4, HR, K)
  6. Steve Clevenger, C
  7. Jonathan Schoop, 3B
