Lineups for Game 1 of Indians-Tigers series

The choice between Victor Martinez and the hobbling Miguel Cabrera at DH came down to a pregame conversation between Cabrera and manager Brad Ausmus, who wanted to gauge how his slugger felt. Eugenio Suarez is at shortstop for the first time as a starter since Sept. 6.

Detroit entered the day a half-game out of first in the American League Central, and a game out of the first AL Wild Card slot, behind Oakland.
