Josh Towers (0-1, 7.71 ERA) vs. Josh Beckett (1-0, 1.29 ERA). 2:05 PM EST start.
Today's contest features a battle of the Joshes. Last season the Blue Jays were 11-7 against the Red Sox. They outscored them by a combined score of 115-76, 18 more runs than they scored against any other team last season.
Today's Blue Jays lineup:
Molina, rather than Zaun, will face the right-handed Beckett. I sincerely hope this won't become routine.
Today's Red Sox lineup:
With Coco Crisp out for several weeks with an injury, Adam Stern will take his place in center field. He had some great moments as a member of team Canada in the WBC this past March. It'll be interesting to see if his all-out play both in the field and on the basepaths make him a fan favourite in Boston.
