Yankees Keep Lineup The Same For Thursday’s ALCS

NOAH TRISTER, AP Baseball Writer

DETROIT (AP) — Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson are still out of New York’s starting lineup for Game 4 of the AL championship series, a day after the game was postponed by rain.

The Yankees kept their lineup the same as it would have been Wednesday — with Rodriguez on the bench for the third time in nine postseason games. A-Rod is 3 for 23 in these playoffs.

Granderson joins him on the bench Thursday after another hitless night in Game 3 dropped the center fielder to 3 for 29 with 15 strikeouts. Granderson hit 43 homers with 106 RBIs this season.

Nick Swisher, who was benched in Game 3, returns to the lineup in right field. Eric Chavez starts at third base in place of Rodriguez. Brett Gardner starts in Granderson’s normal spot.
