Last time the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays, it didn’t fare so well for the Canadian club.
Boston swept Toronto in a three-game set in early May shortly before the Jays skidded against other AL East foes. But now, the Blue Jays come in rolling winning their last three series in a row.
They took out each of the Miami Marlins, Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants. In each series, Toronto lost the opening game, but won the final two.
Tonight, Jose Berrios looks to start things off well as the Red Sox send out James Paxton on the mound.
