The good news is we have scored 22 runs over the past three games against the Red Sox. The bad news is we have allowed 19.

The Blue Jays have a chance to split the series today, which all things considered would be very acceptable considering they will be facing Chris Sale.

Thomas Pannone has made it to Fenway after what I’m sure was a very unpleasant evening for him:

Nick Kingham has been DFA’d in his place. Hopefully the Jays can sneak him through waivers.

Here’s todays lineup, which looks pretty different. Grichuk has been moved up to bat 2nd, Vlad bats 6th and Biggio is all the way down to 8th against a tough lefty.

Today's Lineups

Freddy Galvis - SS Mookie Betts - CF
Randal Grichuk - RF Rafael Devers - 3B
