Tonight’s 7:05 p.m. ET game at Progressive Field will be broadcast on WTAM and STO.

UPDATE: Quentin was scratched with a sore heel and replaced by Lillibridge.

CF Grady Sizemore, 2B Asdrubal Cabrera, C Victor Martinez, 3B Mark DeRosa, RF Shin-Soo Choo, SS Jhonny Peralta, DH Ryan Garko, 1B Matt LaPorta, LF Ben Francisco. LHP Jeremy Sowers (0-1, 12.60).

SS Jayson Nix, 2B Chris Getz, RF Jermaine Dye, DH Jim Thome, 1B Paul Konerko, 3B Josh Fields, C Corky Miller, LF Scott Podsednik, CF Brent Lillibridge. LHP Clayton Richard (0-0, 4.41).


Not the move at the top many of us were expecting/hoping for, but we get both Garko and LaPorta in the line-up! Should be interesting.

Give it a day, another lefty starter tomorrow.

So other than the last 4 days off, does anyone know how much experience, at any level, LaPorta has had at 1B before starting there tonight?

I think he played 1B throughout all his college career with the gators…

They had him play it in Columbus, or at least he did in the last game he played in Columbus.

Thanks, looks like your right according to Baseball America, he was 1B for the Gators.

I know it’s a lefty on the mound but I’m a little surprised Choo is out of the four spot, especially given as how Choo had a really productive day there yesterday. Arguably his most productive day at the four spot was yesterday.
