My kingdom for a worse throw.

The Red Sox (17-5) look to get back on track and snap a three-game losing streak when they face the Blue Jays (14-8) tonight in Toronto (7:07 p.m., NESN+).

About tonight’s game: After a rough first outing, Eduardo Rodriguez (2-0, 3.45 ERA) looks to put together a third straight strong start. He’ll be matched by the promising righty Aaron Sanchez (1-2, 3.86 ERA).

About last night’s game: J.A. Happ stymied the Red Sox and one bad inning from Rick Porcello put Boston in a 3-0 hole early. The Sox would claw back to tie it in the top of the ninth only to see Eduardo Nunez thrown out at home to end the inning. In the bottom of the tenth, Craig Kimbrel gave up a walkoff homer to Curtis Granderson to end it, 4-3. Read the recap here.

Forecast: Dome life.
