At 7:10, the Red Sox will look to continue their four-game winning streak against a Blue Jays team that’s had a shaky start to the season. When Boston takes the field, all eyes will be on Porcello, who has a 1-1 record but a 7.95 ERA. In his last appearance, he gave up eight earned runs and four home runs in a shellacking. The Red Sox have bounced back from that embarrassment, winning four in a row. The Red Sox defeated the Blue Jays Tuesday night, winning 8-7 in a high scoring affair. Heath Hembree came in clutch for Boston, blanking Toronto for two frames. Toronto is looking to snap a skid, as they’ve only won one out of their last 10 games. That win came against Baltimore on Sunday. Francisco Liriano will be starting for the Blue Jays. The southpaw has pitched twice this season, getting teed off of the first time, which explains his 9.00 ERA. However, he bounced back and had a solid outing, although he was stuck with a no decision after the Blue Jays dropped the game by a score of 2-1. After tonight, the Red Sox will play one more game at the Rogers Centre before heading down to Baltimore to play a series against the A.L. East leaders. After they’re done with Boston, the Blue Jays will be heading to Los Angeles and St. Louis to take on the Angels and Cardinals, respectively.
