The Blue Jays are in Boston as the middle stop on their 10 game road trip. The Red Sox are fresh off a 5 hour, 40 minute marathon against the Dodgers last night in which they used 8 pitchers. Hopefully the Jays can somehow find a way to take advantage of this.

Here are today’s lineups. Vlad gets another day off, newly recalled Billy McKinney will start in right field, and Jansen will catch for Thornton.

Today's Lineups

BLUE JAYS RED SOX
Eric Sogard - DH Mookie Betts - RF
Freddy Galvis - SS Rafael Devers - 3B
Lourdes Gurriel - LF Xander Bogaerts - SS
