AL East Division rivals will battle on Wednesday afternoon, when the Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox conclude their series from Fenway Park. The Blue Jays have dropped the first two games by identical 8-3 final scores. Last night, SP Marco Estrada (2-6) gave up four runs in three plus innings and was charged with the loss.
Twenty-eight year old righty Sam Gaviglio (2-0 2.30 ERA) will make his third start of the season for the Blue Jays. Last time out, Gaviglio allowed three runs over six frames during a 6-5 victory at Philadelphia.
The Boston Red Sox have won 38 of their first 55 games and own the best record in the majors. On Tuesday, Sandy Leon homered and hit two doubles to power the Red Sox offense. Craig Kimbrel earned his 17th save of the season for Boston, who leads New York by 2.5 games for first place.
Twenty-five year old southpaw Eduardo Rodriguez (5-1 4.02 ERA) has gotten off to a nice start for the Red Sox. Rodriguez has won consecutive starts and has allowed just two runs over his last 11 plus innings.
