Tigers and Athletics lineups for Game 2 of the ALDS, at O.co Coliseum. First pitch is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. ET …
I speculated this morning that we might see Jhonny Peralta in left field rather than Andy Dirks, but it’s actually Kelly who will get the start. Dirks had some bad at-bats last night, so it’s not surprising to see him sitting, but it appears that Jim Leyland isn’t willing to gamble with Peralta in left quite yet. Otherwise, everything is the same as Game 1.

Confirming suspicions from this morning, Daric Barton is on the bench for Game 2 while Brandon Moss will play first base. Meanwhile, Seth Smith will get the start out of the designated hitter spot. The top five spots in the lineup are the same as last night, but Smith moves into the No. 6 spot while Reddick and Vogt both move down.
