With the Red Sox one win away from a trip to the World Series, here are the lineups for Game 6 of the ALCS at Fenway Park …

Tigers:
RF Torii Hunter
3B Miguel Cabrera
1B Prince Fielder
DH Victor Martinez
LF Jhonny Peralta
2B Omar Infante
C Alex Avila
CF Austin Jackson
SS Jose Iglesias

SP Max Scherzer

Tigers manager Jim Leyland is sticking with his new-look lineup, featuring Torii Hunter in the leadoff spot and Miguel Cabrera out of the No. 2 spot. Alex Avila left Thursday’s game with a left patellar tendon strain following a home plate collision with David Ross, but he feels good enough to give it a go in Game 6.

Red Sox:
CF Jacoby Ellsbury
RF Shane Victorino
2B Dustin Pedroia
DH David Ortiz
1B Mike Napoli
C Jarrod Saltalamacchia
LF Jonny Gomes
SS Stephen Drew
3B Xander Bogaerts

After David Ross caught Jon Lester on Thursday night, Jarrod Saltalamacchia is back in the starting lineup for Game 6. Jonny Gomes and Xander Bogaerts are starting again, though they will each be bumped down a spot in the order from Game 5. Stephen Drew remains at shortstop, despite hitting just .094 (3-for-32) this postseason.
