After completing an impressive sweep of the Yankees, the Boston Red Sox look to extend their winning streak and lead in the A.L. East with a series against the Blue Jays.
It's an anti-lefty lineup tonight, which basically amounts to Cameron in for Drew, and Lowrie batting ahead of Crawford.
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Adrian Gonzalez, 1B
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. David Ortiz, DH
6. Jed Lowrie, SS
7. Carl Crawford, LF
8. Mike Cameron, RF
9. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
Clay Buchholz is back on the mound after a bit of a lay-off to rest his ailing back. He's hoping to bounce back from an ugly start against the Oakland Athletics back on the 3rd.

The Jays will turn to Jo-Jo Reyes, who now has two straight wins after an impressive streak without any. He's a lefty, but he doesn't have much in the way of splits, and he's yet to really show he can handle the elite lineups of the AL East.
