The Red Sox are back at Fenway this week and are wrapping up a quick two game series with the Toronto Blue Jays today. Today's game is scheduled for 1:35 p.m. and can be seen on NESN and heard on the WEEI radio network.
The Sox broke out of their offensive struggles last night with an 18-run performance that also helped propel Tim Wakefield to his 200th career win. The win also helped put some more distance between themselves and the Tampa Bay Rays. The Sox now lead the race for the Wild Card by four full games. The Rays and Sox will meet again for a four game set beginning tomorrow at Fenway that could decide the Wild Card race.
The Sox remain four games behind the Yankees in the AL East.
Below are the starting line-ups for today.
RED SOX (86-61)
Pitching: RHP John Lackey (12-12, 6.30)
BLUE JAYS (74-74)
Pitching: LHP Ricky Romero (14-10, 3.01)
