Jackson scratched from Tigers lineup
Austin Jackson has been scratched from the Detroit Tigers’
lineup Sunday due to a sore left ankle.

With two outs in the seventh inning and Detroit right-hander
Anibal Sanchez working on a no-hitter, Jackson ran into the
center-field fence trying to catch a drive by Carlos Santana that
went for a triple.
Manager Jim Leyland and a trainer went out to check on Jackson,
who stayed in the game. Afterwards, Leyland said the outfielder was
Quinton Berry shifted from left field to replace Jackson, who is
hitting .305. Berry moved up one spot in the order to leadoff. Andy
Dirks played left, batting second.
