Game #10: Tigers at Blue Jays pregame

Detroit (6-3) at Toronto (5-4)
at 7:07 p.m. ET at the Rogers Centre

Today’s lineup:

Curtis Granderson, CF
Placido Polanco, 2B
Ivan Rodriguez, C
Gary Sheffield, DH
Magglio Ordonez, RF
Carlos Guillen, SS
Sean Casey, 1B
Craig Monroe, LF
Brandon Inge, 3B

PITCHING: RHP Jeremy Bonderman

Alex Rios, RF
Matt Stairs, LF
Vernon Wells, CF
Frank Thomas, DH
Lyle Overbay, 1B
Gregg Zaun, C
Aaron Hill, 2B
Jason Smith, 3B
John McDonald, SS

PITCHING: RHP Roy Halladay

NOTES: Toronto placed LF Reed Johnson (sore back) on the 15-day disabled list and planned on recalling OF Adam Lind from Triple-A Syracuse. Lind was en route to Toronto Friday and would be available on Saturday. … The Jays are giving 3B Troy Glaus (sore hamstring and bone spur in left heel) a few games off before deciding whether or not a trip to the DL could be in store for him, too. … Stairs hit second because he owns a .476 career average against Bonderman. … With a short-handed bench, the Jays have P Josh Towers available as a pinch runner. … Prior to the game, Toronto placed RHP Brandon League on the 15-day DL. The league voided his option to allow the move.

The Jays have won every game so far where they scored first, and lost every game where they didn’t, so Rios’s first inning HR is a good sign.
