Tigers lineup vs. Rays, Game 4: Porcello vs. Moore

The Tigers (3-0) host Tampa Bay (3-0) having won seven of their last eight games against the Rays. Rick Porcello makes his season debut on the mound, facing much-hyped Tampa rookie Matt Moore.

Here's the lineup the Tigers are trotting out against the left-handed Moore:

Austin Jackson, CF (.571, 2-2B, 1-3B, 5R)
Brennan Boesch, RF (.133, 1 RBI, 2K)
Miguel Cabrera, 3B (.455, 3 HR, 8 RBI)
Prince Fielder, 1B (.417, 2 HR, 3 RBI)
Delmon Young, LF (.231, 2R, 1 RBI)
Ryan Raburn, DH (.167, 2R, 4K)
Jhonny Peralta, SS (.417, 2-2B, 3 RBI)
Gerald Laird, C (first game action)
Danny Worth, 2B (1.000, 1R)

*NOTE: Ramon Santiago was a late scratch with the virus that's been going around the Tigers clubhouse. He was originally scheduled to start at 2B.

Desmond Jennings, CF
Carlos Pena, 1B
Evan Longoria, 3B
Matt Joyce, LF
Ben Zobrist, RF
Jeff Keppinger, DH
Sean Rodriguez, 2B
Jose Molina, C
Reid Brignac, SS
