ALCS Game 4: Yankees keep A-Rod, Granderson on bench

Yankees face elimination without A-Rod, Granderson in Game 4 of the ALCS

A night of sleep didn't convince Yankees' brass to insert struggling stars Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson into the lineup as the team attempts to avoid a sweep in Game 4 of the ALCS in Detroit (4 PM ET, TBS).

Joe Girardi will trot out the same lineup he originally posted for Game 4 prior to Wednesday night's rainout. Tigers manager Jim Leyland will follow suit.

Yankees' ace CC Sabathia faces off against the Tigers' Max Scherzer, but Wednesday's cancellation could mean that Sabathia won't be able to go in Game 7, should the series get that far. But, that's a problem the Yankees would love to have.

Full lineups are below:

New York Yankees:

1. Ichiro Suzuki, LF
2. Nick Swisher, RF
3. Mark Teixeira, 1B
4. Robinson Cano, 2B
5. Raul Ibanez, DH
6. Eric Chavez, 3B
7. Russell Martin, C
8. Brett Gardner, CF
9. Eduardo Nunez, SS

Detroit Tigers:

1. Austin Jackson, CF
2. Omar Infante, 2B
3. Miguel Cabrera, 3B
4. Prince Fielder, 1B
5. Delmon Young, DH
6. Jhonny Peralta, SS
7. Andy Dirks, LF
8. Avisail Garcia, RF
9. Gerald Laird, C
