ALCS Game 1: Tigers at Red Sox starting lineups

Thearon W. Henderson

ALCS Game 1 starting lineups have been released for the Tigers and Red Sox. Jim Leyland elects to start Jhonny Perlata in left field and Jose Iglesias at shortstop.

Jim Leyland's only lineup decision going into ALCS Game 1 was where he would play Jhonny Perlata, at shortstop or in left field? Peralta will receive a baptism by fire in regard to the Green Monster. He'll get the start in left field over Andy Dirks and Don Kelly. After seeing only late game defensive duty in ALDS Game 5, Jose Iglesias rejoins the starting lineup at short.

Detroit Tigers:

1. Austin Jackson, CF
2. Torii Hunter, RF
3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B
4. Prince Fielder, 1B
5. Victor Martinez, DH
6. Jhonny Peralta, LF
7. Omar Infante, 2B
8. Alex Avila, C
9. Jose Iglesias, SS

Anibal Sanchez, P

The Red Sox sit Jarrod Saltalamacchia, preferring David Ross as Jon Lester's battery mate. Ross was behind the plate in Lester's 2-1 victory over the Tigers on September 3. Lester held the Tigers to eight hits and one run over seven innings. BoSox Manager John Farrell hopes history repeats itself by starting Ross.

Boston Red Sox:

1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Shane Victorino, RF
3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
4.  David Ortiz, DH
5. Mike Napoli, 1B
6.  Daniel Nava, LF
7. Stephen Drew, SS
8. Will Middlebrooks, 3B
9. David Ross, C
