After taking two-of-three in New York, the Boston Red Sox head north of the border. Tonight, they'll take on the Toronto Blue Jays in the first game of a three-game set at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The Red Sox pregame show will start on NESN at 6 p.m. First pitch is scheduled for 7:07 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Blue Jays television market, you can catch the game on Rogers SportsNet. And if you can't catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2013 Red Sox Radio Network. Felix Doubront makes his first start of 2013 for the Red Sox. He made four starts against the Jays last year and was 1-2 with a 5.91 ERA. He's made nine career appearances (four starts) against them and is 2-2 with a 5.40 ERA. He's made four appearances (two starts) at Rogers Centre where he is 2-0 with a 4.05 ERA. Josh Johnson makes his Blue Jays debut after coming over in a trade from the Miami Marlins in an offseason trade. He picked up the win in his lone start of 2012 against the Red Sox after allowing one run in seven innings of work. He's made two career starts against the Red Sox and is 1-0 with a 2.57 ERA (4 ER/14 IP).
