The Red Sox and Tigers are tied at one game apiece in the American League Championship Series after the Red Sox eked out a one-run victory Sunday. Both squads have now released their lineups for Game 3.
The Tigers will play nearly the exact same lineup as they did in Game 2, when they scored five runs but lost. The only change in personnel comes in left field, where Andy Dirks will replace Don Kelly and hit ninth. Over his career, Dirks has gone 2-5 with a walk and a triple against Red Sox starter John Lackey.
Here is the full Tigers' lineup, as tweeted out by ESPN's Jon Sciambi:
Mike Napoli is back in the Red Sox lineup after a day off to clear his head. One of MLB's hottest hitters in September, Napoli has struggled in the postseason with just two hits in six games. Jonny Gomes will also remain in the lineup after taking Daniel Nava's spot in left field for Game 2.
The only other change in the Red Sox lineup from Game 2 is a bump up for Jarrod Saltalamacchia, who will now bat sixth with Gomes moving down to seventh in the order.

First pitch is scheduled for 4:07 p.m. EST and will be broadcast live on FOX.
