8 a.m. ET: Allen Webster is still searching for his first big league win. On Friday, he’ll go up against a Blue Jays team that arrived in Boston with a lot to prove.
The Red Sox took the first game of their four-game set with the Blue Jays on Thursday behind a seven-run offensive explosion in the second inning. The Boston bats were held in check throughout the rest of the evening, but seven runs proved to be more than enough for Jon Lester and Co.
Webster will hope to get similar offensive support on Friday, as Toronto’s lineup is aggressive and extremely dangerous. Webster went up against another potent offense in his last start on Saturday, and he gave up five runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Tigers.
