The Red Sox (27-25) took game 1 of the series in Toronto last night 7-2 behind great pitching by Clay Buchholz. The Red Sox are now tied with the Blue Jays (27-25) for fourth place in the division and both teams are only 3 games out of first place. Game 2 of the series takes place today at 1pm in Toronto.
LHP Felix Doubront (5-2, 3.86) takes the mound for the Red Sox against RHP Kyle Drabek (4-5, 4.55) for the Blue Jays. Gonzalez and Ortiz have very good numbers against Drabek so watch their at bats closely to gauge what type of day the Sox will have offensively. Daniel Nava is back in the lineup today after Bobby V all but saying he would have the day off last night, but you gotta have him back in there after going 4 for 5 with 3 doubles.
Here is the lineup:
On paper this matchup looks favorable for the Sox, Doubront has been pitching great and Drabek is the type of pitcher the Sox left handed batters can pound. So look for Toronto to win today's game and put up some runs early against Doubront. Leave comments here to let us know who you think will win the game today.
