Yankees, Tigers lineups same as set before rainout

Even with a night to think things over after Wednesday's ALCS Game 4 was rained out, New York Yankees manager Joe Girardi and Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland have decided to stick with the lineups they had announced Wednesday before the weather interruption (* indicates lefthanded hitter, # indicates switch-hitter):

YANKEES
1. Ichiro Suzuki*, LF
2. Nick Swisher#, RF
3. Robinson Cano*, 2B
4. Mark Teixeira#, 1B
5. Raul Ibanez*, DH
6. Eric Chavez, 3B
7. Russell Martin, C
8. Brett Gardner*, CF
9. Eduardo Nunez, SS


TIGERS
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

The pitchers, too, are the same as announced earlier: Max Scherzer for the Tigers, CC Sabathia for the Yankees. The rain has pulled out of the Detroit area and there should be no problem with an on-time start at 4 p.m. ET.
