Detroit is using the same starting lineup from last week’s ALDS Game 5 win over the A’s at Oakland’s O.co Coliseum. It’s only the second start at shortstop for Peralta since he returned from his 50-game performance-enhancing drug suspension. He had been playing primarily in left field. Jose Iglesias will be available off the bench as a pinch-runner or defensive replacement. The Red Sox, as expected, have subbed Carp for Mike Napoli at first base and Gomes for Daniel Nava in left field. We’ll have updates all night here on HBT.
