Red Sox vs. Blue Jays lineup: Eduardo Nunez returns, Andrew Benintendi sits

The magic number is three. That’s what matters. The six wins in a row is a nice touch, though.

The A.L. East title is so close I can almost figuratively taste it. I can already figuratively smell it, and I can’t smell anything. We’re close. Drew Pomeranz tries to bring us closer tonight back at home for the last time this regular season against the Blue Jays. Brett Anderson counters for Toronto, which could be out of gas after last night’s extended goodbye to Jose Bautista back at the Rogers Centre. Let’s hope Molson XXX put them away for us.

As you learned from the headline, Eduardo Nunez is back and DHing. Hanley’s at first. Here are the full lineups:
