Marlins Vs. Blue Jays Game 1 Lineup: Anibal Sanchez Takes The Mound For Miami

The Miami Marlins begin a three-game series on Friday night as they host the Toronto Blue Jays in another interleague series. Anibal Sanchez is getting the start for the Marlins while the Blue Jays are bringing out Ricky Romero.

The Marlins are making a few changes to their lineup from Thursday, and one change is that they will not have the luxury of using a designated hitter Hanley Ramirez had been the designated hitter but he is back at third base, and that move places Greg Dobbs on the bench for Friday night. Plus, Austin Kearns is in the lineup at left field and he will be batting sixth.

Marlins lineup:
1. Jose Reyes SS
2. Hanley Ramirez 3B
3. Giancarlo Stanton RF
4. Justin Ruggiano CF
5. Omar Infante 2B
6. Austin Kearns LF
7. Gaby Sanchez 1B
8. John Buck C
9. Anibal Sanchez P

Blue Jays lineup:
