Let’s see it again.

The Red Sox look for their third win in row when they take on the Blue Jays at 1:35 p.m. at Fenway Park on this, the last non-football Sunday until February, at least in theory.

After walking off last night’s high scoring affair, the Sox will send righty Andrew Triggs out there to start against another Blue Jays trade deadline addition — this time it’s lefty Robbie Ray, a fireballing lefty formerly of the Diamondbacks who occasionally has trouble locating the strike zone.

Rowdy Tellez hit yet another homer last night and is batting cleanup, but otherwise the Jays’s lineup resembles their recent slate. Not so for Boston! We got a Sunday special extraordinaire. Yairo Muñoz is leading off! Christian Vázquez batting second at DH! Bobby Dalbec spelling Rafael Devers are their mutual natural third base spot! Fun times at Fenway and in your backyard, where you may be listening to the game over franks, beans and beers. Make it happen.
