Red Sox Vs. Blue Jays Game Preview: Sox Aim To Avoid Sweep At Fenway

In a fight to avoid last place in the American League East, the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox will meet Sunday in Fenway Park at 1:35 p.m. ET. Toronto has won the series, winning 9-2 on Saturday night and 7-5 on Friday.

Pitching today for Boston will be Clay Buchholz (11-5, 4.47 ERA), whose last start against Toronto was a 7-2 Red Sox victory in early June. The Sox will be facing Carlos Villanueva (7-5, 3.42 ERA), who has struggled as of late. Villanueva has just one win over his past seven starts, with his most recent outing seeing him give up six earned runs to the AL East leading Orioles.

With just a few series to go, Boston is looking to avoid its first last-place finish in the AL East since 1993. The Jays and Sox will meet again next weekend in Toronto.

The game will be broadcast on SN-1 in Toronto and on NESN in the Boston Area.
