After going 7-3 on their last homestand and enjoying a day off on Monday, the Boston Red Sox hit the road for their next six games. They'll kick if off tonight with the first game of a three-game set with the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
I predict the Red Sox will win 7-4 (Red Sox -122).
First pitch is scheduled for 7:07 p.m. If you live in the Red Sox television market you can catch the game on NESN. If you live in the Blue Jays television market, you can catch the game on Rogers SportsNet. And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network.
Jon Lester steps on the slab for the sixth time in 2013. In his previous five starts, Lester is 4-0 with a 2.27 ERA. He picked up the win in his only start against the Jays this season after tossing seven scoreless innings back on April 7. He's made 23 career starts against the Jays and is 12-7 with a 3.67 ERA. 14 of those starts have come north of the border where he is 7-5 with a 3.14 ERA.
Brandon Morrow takes the mound for his sixth start as well of 2013. In his previous five starts, Morrow is 0-2 with a 5.27 ERA. He last faced the Red Sox in 2012 when he picked up a no decision after throwing six scoreless innings. He's made 16 career appearances (eight starts) against the visiting nine and is 1-3 with an 8.28 ERA.
