ALDS Game 2: Yankees vs. Tigers
It’s a beautiful afternoon at Yankee Stadium as the Yankees and Tigers continue the American League Division Series, with Freddy Garcia looking to put New York up two games to none as the ALDS prepares to go on to Detroit. Max Scherzer is hoping to have a little something to say about that from the Tigers’ standpoint.
Here are the lineups, as the Yankees are expecting to keep trotting the same lineup out there for the entire ALDS:
