Avila in Tigers lineup for Game 6
The catcher left Game 5 Thursday night in the fourth inning after a home-plate collision and taking a foul ball off his mask. He sprained his left knee when Boston's David Ross ran into him trying unsuccessfully to score in the second. Avila was hit by Ross' foul ball in the top of the fourth.
Tigers manager Jim Leyland said before Saturday night's game that Avila feels pretty good.
