Quintin Berry, Andy Dirks back in the Tigers' lineup as World Series lands at Comerica Park

Now that Detroit's back in its own ballpark, it can return to American League rules and have a full contingent of outfielders. Facing a right-handed starter helps, too. So lefties Quintin Berry and Andy Dirks will take up positions in the outfield corners, while Delmon Young returns to his DH role. Anibal Sanchez is starting for Detroit.

The only change to the Giants' lineup going into game 3 is using their backup catcher, Hector Sanchez, as the DH. Sanchez will bat 8th.
