Saturday's epic Game 1 of the ALCS between the Tigers and Yankees ended at 1 a.m. ET. Nine hours later, Tigers manager Jim Leyland already is up and going, and has posted his team's lineup for Game 2:
This lineup will be facing Yankees righthander Hiroki Kuroda, who is going on three days' rest after another possible starter, David Phelps, had to throw in relief Saturday night. Kuroda faced the Tigers twice during the 2012 regular season, allowing five earned runs in 13⅓ innings (3.38 ERA) and picking up a pair of no-decisions (the Yankees split the two games). Current Tigers are hitting .317 (26-for-82) against Kuroda with four home runs (two by Miguel Cabrera, one each by Alex Avila and Gerald Laird).
The Tigers will counter with righthander Anibal Sanchez, who is going on a normal four-days' rest.
