Lineups for final game of Tigers-Yankees series

The Yankees and Tigers meet up for the final time in the regular season. The Tigers come in 2.5 games out in the American League Central, and a half-game out of the second AL Wild Card spot. New York is six games out in the AL East and two games behind the Tigers in the Wild Card standings.

Kyle Lobstein made his major league debut last weekend, but he'll get his first big-league start Thursday. The Tigers picked Lobstein in the Rule 5 draft two offseasons ago, and traded catcher Curt Casali to the Tampa Bay Rays so they could hold onto Lobstein's rights. He's 52-48 in 146 minor-league starts, and went 9-11 with a 4.07 ERA at Triple-A Toledo this season.
