Brings out the brooms, the Sox are looking for a sweep. It'll be a hard task, though, because the Sox go up against Roy Halladay who is 4-1 with a 3.59 ERA on the season. Luckily for us, Halladay isn't facing Julian Tavarez again (we've seen that match-up two times already). Tim Wakefield looks to lower his stellar 2.11 ERA against a tough Jays lineup. Here's what the lineups look like:

Red Sox
  1. Julio Lugo, SS
  2. Kevin Youkilis, 1B
  3. David Ortiz, DH
  4. Manny Ramirez, LF
  5. J.D. Drew, RF
  6. Mike Lowell, 3B
  7. Coco Crisp, CF
  8. Doug Mirabelli, C
  9. Alex Cora, 2B
-- Tim Wakefield SP (3-3, 2.11)

Blue Jays

  1. Alex Rios, RF
  2. Adam Lind, LF
  3. Vernon Wells, CF
  4. Frank Thomas, DH
  5. Troy Glaus, 3B
  6. Lyle Overbay, 1B
  7. Aaron Hill, 2B
  8. Sal Fasano, C
  9. John McDonald, SS
-- Roy Halladay SP (4-1, 3.59)

Baseball Notes:

  • Toronto closer BJ Ryan underwent Tommy John Surgery. To put it simply, the Jays are screwed in the bullpen.
  • Dustin Pedroia sits even though he's on a huge hot streak. I'm not really happy about the move to sit him after three great games, but I'm sure Alex Cora will step up. I just don't want Pedroia to lose his streak.
