The playoff-bound Red Sox (99-46) look for their 100th win of the year against a frisky Blue Jays (65-79) team tonight at Fenway Park (7:10 p.m., NESN).

About tonight’s game: David Price (14-6, 3.57 ERA), who has been electric, will square off against righty Aaron Sanchez (4-5, 5.17 ERA), who has been electric... in the past. The lineups are below. I have nothing to add to them.

About last night’s game: Things looked bad for the offense in Chris Sale’s abbreviated return, and then things got weird:

Holt merely three-run homer to ultimately win it, 7-2, and clinch a playoff berth.

Forecast: High sixties (nice) with likely rain (not nice).

Today’s reading: Matt tries to parse the catching situation. Godspeed.

A good and true from last night that immediately followed the tweet above:
