Pirates Vs. Tigers Game 1 Lineups: Clint Barmes Back At Shortstop For Pittsburgh

Interleague play is back as the Pittsburgh Pirates host the Detroit Tigers for a three-game set. The Pirates are starting A.J. Burnett who will be matched by Doug Fister for the Tigers, and with this being played at a National League park it will require Fister to take the mound against Burnett.

The Pirates lineup has only one change from Thursday's game as Clint Barnes gets the start at shortstop instead of Josh Harrison, who started on Thursday.

The Tigers did have changes of their own by sitting designated hitter Brennan Boesch Friday night. Other changes are having Delmon Young back in the lineup at left field after only being a pinch-hitter in Thursday's game, and so is shortstop Jhonny Peralta who will be batting seventh.

1. Alex Presley LF
2. Neil Walker 2B
3. Andrew McCutchen CF
4. Garrett Jones RF
