5/2: Indians at Tigers
Some travel drama this morning, as the flight scheduled to get Matt LaPorta, Luis Valbuena and Josh Barfield here was canceled. But the trio was placed on a different flight that arrived in Detroit about 1:30 p.m. ET.
Anyway, none of the three were expected to be in today’s lineup anyway. The 3:40 p.m. ET game will be broadcast on FOX and WTAM 1100.
INDIANS (9-14): CF Grady Sizemore, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, C Victor Martinez, LF Shin-Soo Choo, 3B Mark DeRosa, SS Jhonny Peralta, DH David Dellucci, 1B Ryan Garko, RF Ben Francisco. LHP Aaron Laffey (2-0, 2.41).
TIGERS (11-11): CF Curtis Granderson, 2B Placido Polanco, RF Magglio Ordonez, 1B Miguel Cabrera, DH Carlos Guillen, C Gerald Laird, 3B Brandon Inge, LF Ryan Raburn, SS Adam Everett. RHP Zach Miner (2-1, 6.00).
