Tigers Vs. Pirates Lineups: Neil Walker Sits Against Justin Verlander

Here are lineups for the Tigers and Pirates as Justin Verlander takes on Kevin Correia at 1:35 Sunday.

1. Austin Jackson CF
2. Quintin Berry RF
3. Miguel Cabrera 3B
4. Prince Fielder 1B
5. Delmon Young LF
6. Alex Avila C
7. Jhonny Peralta SS
8. Ryan Raburn 2B
9. Justin Verlander P

1. Alex Presley LF
2. Josh Harrison 2B
3. Andrew McCutchen CF
4. Casey McGehee 1B
5. Pedro Alvarez 3B
6. Garrett Jones RF
7. Clint Barmes SS
8. Michael McKenry C
9. Kevin Correia P

The Pirates are without Rod Barajas (who usually sits out on Sundays) and Neil Walker, which just makes facing Verlander that much more difficult. The Pirates already took the first two games of the series, and if they can’t manage the sweep Sunday afternoon, I can live with that, because this pitching matchup is brutal for them.
