Saturday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Angels


Get used to the Tigers’ anti-lefty lineup, because with five meetings in the next six days against southpaw starters, it’s going to be a familiar sight. That potentially includes Rajai Davis in the leadoff spot, Ian Kinsler hitting second and Torii Hunter batting fifth.

“I’ve kind of had that in mind,” Brad Ausmus said.

On the Angels side, Brennan Boesch gets his first start in a Halos uniform. He’ll be playing right field, batting ninth.
