The Red Sox will take on the Toronto Blue Jays in the first game of a three-game batlle for the bottom of the A.L. East. First pitch is at 7:10 p.m. EST with broadcasts on NESN and WEEI.
There's no such thing as an impressive Red Sox lineup these days. There are only better Red Sox lineups and worse Red Sox lineups. Today's falls somewhere in the middle. On the one hand, it's got the full complement of Pedroia - Ellsbury - Ross in the middle. On the other hand, Ryan Kalish is the DH for the day, which is...not very good. He's had some decent numbers when he's played of late, however, so who knows?
Boston Red Sox (63-75)
Toronto Blue Jays (61-75)
