Game 5: Yankees @ Tigers

4/6/2013

DETROIT -- Here's the Yankees' lineup for today's game, first pitch at 4:05 p.m.

Brett Gardner CF

Robinson Cano 2B

Kevin Youkilis 3B

Travis Hafner DH

Vernon Wells LF

Brennan Boesch RF

Francisco Cervelli C

Lyle Overbay 1B

Jayson Nix SS

Phil Hughes RHP

Pregame notes: Phil Hughes was starting somewhere today, either here or for Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, but with the Yankees reeling and the bullpen short, the club chose to activate him to start in a ballpark where he threw his only nine-inning complete game victory of his career, last year. Hughes is 5-4 overall against the Tigers with a 4.22 ERA, but 3-2 with a 2.78 ERA at Comerica ... Ichiro Suzuki gets his first day off of the season. Ichiro said Joe Girardi told him yesterday that he would not play today ... Eduardo Nunez reported that his right bicep "feels much better" after being hit with a pitch on Friday, but said it was too sore for him to throw. He will be limited to pinch-running duty today.
