The Red Sox will go for a second straight win--and three in five games--as they send Clay Buchholz to the mound against Carlos Villanueva nad the Toronto Blue Jays.
Dustin Pedroia will be a sight for sore eyes at second base as he makes his return to action after the birth of his second son, Cole, kept him out of the lineup in the last couple of games. He'll take back his usual third spot in the lineup with Cody Ross and James Loney filling out the middle of the order behind him.
Both Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Ryan Lavarnway will find their way into the order with the right-handed Villanueva on the mound. The team will feel safer in that gambit with Guillermo Quiroz providing depth at the position now.
Boston Red Sox (65-80)
Toronto Blue Jays (65-78)
