ALDS Game 3 lineup: Oakland Athletics at Detroit Tigers

After winning Game 1, the Detroit Tigers couldn’t have asked for a more favorable situation. Ace Justin Verlander was taking the mound in Game 2 and the Tigers could have returned home with a 2-0 series lead.

Sonny Gray and the Athletics had a different idea as the young pitcher shut down the powerful Detroit lineup en route to knotting the series up at one game a piece.

The lone change in Oakland’s lineup will be Jed Lowrie and Josh Donaldson switching spots in the order. For Detroit, shortstop Jhonny Peralta will draw a start in the outfield.

Here is the Game 3 lineup for both the Athletics and Tigers.

Oakland Athletics:

1. Coco Crisp (S) CF
2. Josh Donaldson (R) 3B
3. Jed Lowrie (S) SS
4. Brandon Moss (L) 1B
5. Yoenis Cespedes (R) LF
6. Seth Smith (L) DH
7. Josh Reddick (L) RF
8. Stephen Vogt (L) C
9. Eric Sogard (L) 2B

Detroit Tigers:

1. Austin Jackson (R) CF
2. Torii Hunter (R) RF
3. Miguel Cabrera (R) 3B
4. Prince Fielder (L) 1B
5. Victor Martinez (S) DH
6. Jhonny Peralta (R) LF
7. Alex Avila (L) C
8. Omar Infante (R) 2B
9. Jose Iglesias (R) SS
