Lineups Almost Identical Today, But Travis Buck Will Be Playing Left For The Tribe

A look at the posted lineups for this afternoon’s 1:05 game shows them to be almost identical to yesterday’s starters for both teams.

In fact, the White Sox’ will send the same players in exactly the same order against Carlos Carrasco:

1) Juan Pierre (L) LF
2) Gordon Beckham® 2B
3) Adam Dunn (L) DH
4) Paul Konerko® 1B
5) Alex Rios® CF
6) Carlos Quentin® RF
7) A.J. Pierzynski (L) C
8) Alexei Ramirez® SS
9) Brent Morel® 3B

The Indians have eight players batting in precisely the same order. The only change for either team is that the Tribe will have Travis Buck batting seventh instead of Austin Kearns against Edwin Jackson.

1) Michael Brantley (L) CF
2) Asdrubal Cabrera (S) SS
3) Shin-Soo Choo (L) RF
4) Carlos Santana (S) C
5) Travis Hafner (L) DH
6) Orlando Cabrera® 2B
7) Travis Buck (L) LF
8) Matt LaPorta® 1B
9) Jack Hannahan (L) 3B

Let us hope that the almost-identical lineups do not produce identical results — though if the Indians could put up ten runs again, you would have to like their chances.
