After defeating the Detroit Tigers for their first win in their ALDS, the Oakland Athletics and manager Bob Melvin have decided that they'll put the same starting nine on the field Wednesday night for Game 4 (* indicates left-handed hitter, # indicates switch-hitter):
This lineup will be facing Tigers righthander Max Scherzer. Scherzer faced the A's September 18 in Detroit, the game he had to leave after two innings due to what was termed "shoulder fatigue". Scherzer has pitched twice since then with, presumably, no ill effects, so he should be ready to go.
Wednesday's Oakland starter, A.J. Griffin, started that September 18 game. It's his only career start against Detroit and it was not a good one; he gave up five runs in 4⅔ innings, including home runs to Prince Fielder, Jhonny Peralta and Miguel Cabrera.
