Jim Leyland posts Tigers lineup for Game 4

Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland has posted his lineup for Game 4 of the ALCS against the New York Yankees, and it's his usual nine against lefthanded starters (* indicates left-handed hitter):

1. Austin Jackson, CF
2. Omar Infante, 2B
3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B
4. Prince Fielder*, 1B
5. Delmon Young, DH
6. Jhonny Peralta, SS

CC Sabathia, who pitched the Yankees into the championship series with a complete-game, four-hit, one-run performance against the Orioles, will start tonight. He last faced the Tigers August 8 at Comerica Park; he threw 6⅔ innings, allowing five runs (three earned) in a Yankees win. Members of the Tigers postseason roster are hitting .266 (54-for-203) against Sabathia with seven home runs. Cabrera is a particular nemesis of Sabathia's; in his career he is 10-for-26 (.385) against the Yankees ace with two doubles and two home runs.
