Game Threat: The Brett Anderson Era! Red Sox (74-57) @ Blue Jays (61-70)

The Jays are back in action tonight, playing out the rest of the schedule and trying to spoil Boston’s path to their second-consecutive AL East championship. It’ll be Chris Sale going up against…. Brett Anderson! Hoo boy!

And now, the lineups…

Blue Jays

Brett Anderson: 8.18 ERA, 22 IP, 13.9 H9, 0.8 HR9, 4.9 BB9, 6.5 SO9

Red Sox

Chris Sale: 2.88 ERA, 178 1/3 IP, 6.6 H9, 0.8 HR9, 1.8 BB9, 12.8 SO9

Chris Sale is coming off of his worst start of the season last week in Cleveland. It was his first time as a member of the Red Sox not making it at least through five innings pitched, as he was tagged for five earned runs over three innings. So Anderson, who’s making his Blue Jays debut after a couple of strong starts for Triple-A Buffalo, is going to have his work cut out for him against a highly-motivated Sale.
