Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is going to have a difficult time keeping all five of his outfielders happy, because four of them are regulars. And the way Carl Crawford has been hitting lately, it isn't likely he'll get a day off anytime soon.
Brad Ausmus returned to Dodger Stadium for the first time as a major league manager and found the place no different than during his final season as a player. The home team is still getting clutch hits and pulling out dramatic wins.
Don Kelly hit a grand slam and Austin Jackson and Ian Kinsler also homered to lead a Detroit Tigers' split squad over the Toronto Blue Jays 18-4 Tuesday.
Charlie Morton allowed one hit in three scoreless innings, helping the Pittsburgh Pirates to a 5-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday.
Austin Jackson has already bounced around the batting order a bit at spring training, hitting fifth, sixth and even fourth for the Detroit Tigers.
Scott Feldman pitched two scoreless innings in his first spring start for Houston, allowing only one hit in the Astros' 5-1 loss to the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.
Jim Leyland had finally seen enough.
Torii Hunter had a two-run double and Miguel Cabrera drove in two runs after manager Jim Leyland dropped Jackson to eighth in the order and moved everyone else up a place following the Tigers' 1-0 loss in Game 3.
Giants starter Ryan Vogelsong was lifted with two outs in the sixth, after 104 pitches and his fourth walk of the game.
Angel Pagan put a charge into his fifth-inning drive but Austin Jackson ran it down in deep center. A lot of room out there in spacious Comerica Park.
You get the feeling the Tigers are never going to get a big hit in this World Series.
Already an ace and MVP, Justin Verlander proved to be the Detroit Tigers' ultimate closer, too.
Alex Avila's RBI single with two outs in the 11th gave the Detroit Tigers a 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday, one inning after center fielder Austin Jackson kept the game tied with a spectacular catch.
After the rain, the Texas Rangers opened the AL championship series by beating Justin Verlander once again.
It was nearly two years ago, hours before the New York Yankees' World Series opener against Philadelphia. As players prepared, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman went up to his office and telephoned a half-dozen of his counterparts, among them Detroit's Dave Dombrowski.
"I think when you look around the locker room, you see the same core group of guys, and you also see some fresh new faces," center fielder Austin Jackson said. "The lineup got a little more athletic, we added some speed. Just adding some key parts to the team in general I think gets guys motivated and wanting to get the season started."
"I think anybody on this team, honestly, can hit anywhere," he said. "We're all capable of doing pretty much anything that we're called upon to do."
