Tigers sport righty-heavy lineup in Game 2 against lefty Milone

Jim Leyland has posted his line for Game 2 of the Tigers' Division Series against the Oakland Athletics. Saturday, the Tigers took Game 1 behind the stellar pitching of Justin Verlander and the usual reliefers.

1. Austin Jackson - CF
2. Omar Infante - 2B
3. Miguel Cabrera - 3B
4. Prince Fielder* - 1B
5. Delmon Young - DH
6. Jhonny Peralta - SS
7. Andy Dirks* - LF
8. Avisail Garcia - RF
9. Gerald Laird - C

Doug Fister - P

With left-hander Tom Milone starting for the A's and lefty-hitting catcher Alex Avila having played nine innings less than 24 hours earlier, Gerald Laird's getting the start behind the plate. And with Brennan Boesch left off the roster, little-used rookie Avisail Garcia -- he started only 11 games for the club during the regular season -- gets the nod in right field. We'll have more on Garcia later, if he actually does something interesting.
