ALCS Game 1 lineups

The big lineup news isn't with the Rangers, who will have their standard postseason lineup against a right-handed pitcher, but Detroit has been forced to shuffle with Delmon Young (strained oblique) out for the American League Championship Series. Ryan Raburn steps into the lineup in left field. He's a better defender but not as potent at the plate.

Tigers lineup vs. LHP C.J. Wilson: Austin Jackson, cf; Ryan Raburn, lf; Miguel Cabrera, 1b; Victor Martinez, dh; Magglio Ordonez, rf; Alex Avila, c; Jhonny Peralta, ss; Ramon Santiago, 2b; Brandon Inge, 3b.

Rangers lineup vs. RHP Justin Verlander: Ian Kinsler, 2b; Elvis Andrus, ss; Josh Hamilton, cf; Michael Young, dh; Adrian Beltre, 3b; Mike Napoli, c; Nelson Cruz, rf; David Murphy, lf; Mitch Moreland, 1b.
