Omar Infante With Two Hits At Leadoff Spot

With Austin Jackson hurt and Andy Dirks out of the lineup, Tigers second baseman Omar Infante took over the leadoff spot Sunday against the Rangers.

“When you lead him off, you’re leading him off because he’s your only guy in that situation,” manager Jim Leyland told MLB.com. “Normally I wouldn’t have him leading off but, with the situation we’re in, if you look at the lineup, who else would you lead off? … The only other guy you’d think about is [Avisail] Garcia and I don’t want to do that.”
