Blue Jays @ Red Sox Preview

Red Sox almost blew that game last night, and the offense still needs to kick it back into high gear. That could be tough tonight with the underrated Ricky Romero on the hill for the Jays. Romero is only 7-7 on the season, but deserves much better with a 2.75 ERA. What Boston does have going for them is that Romero hasn't been very good against the Sox in his career (7.71 ERA over his last five games against the Red Sox) and Youk should be back in the lineup tonight.

The Wake gets the start for the Sox and he has had a tough go of it lately letting up 5 runs in each of the last two games he has pitched in. On top of that he has lost three straight in this series while compiling an 8.59 ERA.

I wish I could say I like the Sox chances tonight, but I think Romero is due for a big game against the Sox and the Jays just seem to have the Wake's number.

Jays win 6-3
Player of the Game: Travis Snider
Game starts at 7:10pm
