The Yankees will try to avoid the sweep today in Detroit, as they will take on Justin Verlander and the Tigers. CC Sabathia gets the start for the bombers, and will try to improve on his lackluster Opening Day start against the Red Sox. Eduardo Nunez will sit out again with a sore right bicep, and might not be able to return to action for a few more days. * Boesch, Francisco, Hafner, Overbay, Wells and Youkilis are batting a combined .293 (22-for-75) to start the season. Here are the lineups: New York Yankees (1-4) Brett Gardner CF Robinson Cano 2B Kevin Youkilis 3B Travis Hafner DH Vernon Wells LF Ichiro Suzuki RF Francisco Cervelli C Lyle Overbay 1B Jayson Nix SS LHP CC Sabathia (0-1, 7.20 ERA) Detroit Tigers (3-2) Austin Jackson CF Torii Hunter RF Miguel Cabrera 3B Prince Fielder 1B Victor Martinez DH Matt Tuiasosopo LF Brayan Pena C Omar Infante 2B Ramon Santiago SS RHP Justin Verlander (1-0, 0.00 ERA) Game Time: 1:05 pm EST from Comerica Park – Detroit, MI TV: YES Network Radio: WCBS 880, 1280 WADO  follow me on twitter: @RAKcity27
