2-0 BALTIMORE.



Tigers manager Brad Ausmus and Orioles skipper Buck Showalter have announced their starting lineups for Game 2 of today's best-of-five American League Division Series.

Injured Tigers outfielder Rajai Davis, noticeably hobbled last night, is back in the lineup, batting ninth and playing center field. With the Orioles starting a left-hander today, left-handed-hitting Tigers catcher Alex Avila has been bumped down to seventh in the lineup, with third baseman Nick Castellanos batting sixth.

The only change in Baltimore’s lineup today is that catcher Caleb Joseph is batting eighth in place of Nick Hundley, who went 0-for-4 last night.

First pitch at Baltimore's Camden Yards is scheduled for 12:07 p.m.
