The last time the Tigers met up with the Yankees was last year’s American League Division Series, and things didn’t end up so well. Now the Yankees are stuck in a 2 game losing streak where they’ve only scored 3 runs, and they have the grandiose task of taking on one of the best pitchers in the game, Justin Verlander. In his career, he’s held the team to a 3.97 ERA in 10 starts. Pitching against the Tigers is perhaps the Yankees most reliable starting pitcher, Ivan Nova. The right handed pitcher has been successful against the Tigers in the past, with his only scuffle being an injured start in game 5 of the ALDS. Here are tonight’s starting lineups for tonight, and there is a noticeable absence on the Tiger’s side.
|Derek Jeter SS||Austin Jackson CF
|Curtis Granderson CF||Brennan Boesch RF|
|Alex Rodriguez DH||Miguel Cabrera 3B|
|Robinson Cano 2B||Prince Fielder 1B|
|Mark Teixeira 1B||Don Kelly LF
|Nick Swisher RF||Brad Eldred DH
|Raul Ibanez LF||Alex Avila C|
|Eric Chavez 3B||Jhonny Peralta SS
|Russell Martin C||Ryan Raburn 2B|
Check out Matt’s special preview of the Tiger’s series with blogger Alexandra Simon. The game starts at 7:05 PM EST on YES/MLBN.
