World Series game 2: Tigers at Giants lineups

The lineups for game 2 of the World Series have been announced. It's almost deja vu all over again.

Doug Pensinger

Save for the starting pitchers, there is only 1 change in either lineup.

The Giants go with he status quo, the same 1 thru 8 as in game 1. Manager Bruce Bochy did confirm Tim Lincecum will be unavailable out of the bullpen after last nights 2 1/3 inning, 5 strikeout stint.

For the Tigers, the only lineup change will be Gerald Laird backstopping Doug Fister instead of Alex Avila.

As expected, with a lefty starting for the Giants, Avisail Garcia gets another start in right field, Andy Dirks remains the odd man out. Delmon Young gets his second straight start in left field. Let's hope his next throw goes more than 20 feet.

Detroit Tigers:

1. Austin Jackson CF
2, Omar Infante 2B
3. Miguel Cabrera 3B
4, Prince Fielder 1B
5. Delmon Young LF
6. Jhonny Peralta SS
7. Avisail Garcia RF
8. Gerald Laird C
9. Doug Fister RHP

San Francisco Giants:

1. Angel Pagan CF,
2. Marco Scutaro 2B
3. Pablo Sandoval 3B
4. Buster Posey C
5. Hunter Pence RF
