Granderson, Rodriguez on bench for Game 4

The SportsXchange

Struggling center fielder Curtis Granderson and third baseman Alex Rodriguez were not in the New York Yankees' lineup for Game 4 of the American League Championship Series on Thursday against Detroit.

Manager Joe Girardi stuck with the same lineup that he listed before Game 4 was rained out Wednesday night. The Tigers held a 3-0 lead.

Brett Gardner replaced Granderson in center and Nick Swisher was in right and batting second against Tigers right-hander Max Scherzer.

Rodriguez entered the game 3 for 23 with no RBI in the postseason. Granderson's numbers were worse at the plate: 3 for 29 with 15 strikeouts.
