GameThread Game #144: Blue Jays at Red Sox

MLB: New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

We have a southpaw vs. southpaw matchup in the first game of the Jays’ final 2018 series in Boston.

The bad news is we have to face Chris Sale.

The good news is he is on a strict innings/pitch limit, so at least it will be brief.

Ryan Borucki should be looking for a redemption start at Fenway, after his poor outing there last time.

The Fisher Cats are also playing their first game in their Championship Series tonight at 6:35pm EDT. You can stream audio from the game here:

Oh, and there’s a bit of news on Marcus Stroman:

Here are the lineups for tonight. Dan Shulman says Randal Grichuk looks like he lost a fight but is somehow in the lineup, batting fifth. There aren’t too many rookies in the lineup, probably due to that whole using your regulars against a contending teamsituation. At least Danny Jansen will catch for Ryan Borucki.

Today's Lineups

Lourdes Gurriel - SS Mookie Betts - RF
Devon Travis - 2B Andrew Benintendi - LF
Justin Smoak - 1B J.D. Martinez - DH
Kendrys Morales - DH Xander Bogaerts - SS
Randal Grichuk - RF Steve Pearce - 1B
Kevin Pillar - CF Ian Kinsler - 2B
Teoscar Hernandez - LF Eduardo Nunez - 3B
Aledmys Diaz - 3B Sandy Leon - C
Danny Jansen - C Jackie Bradley - CF
