Doug Fister (6.75 ERA) takes the mound this afternoon for the grinding Red Sox (54-42) who look to win their third game in a row against the Blue Jays (43-51) on a getaway day today at Fenway Park (1:35 p.m., NESN). He’ll be matched by lefty Francisco Liriano (6.04 ERA), which, along with the afternoon start time, tweaks the lineup to accommodate both a platoon and Dustin Pedroia DH day. I’d write more but, like you, I am at work, futzing away my time on Over the Monster, and must run. Here are the full lineups:
