Found August 13, 2013 on FenwayNation:
The Red Sox will send Ryan Dempster to the hill tonight in Toronto to try to increase their 3-game lead in the AL East. He will face the immortal Todd Redmond.

This season, Jon Lester has posted an undefeated record against Toronto, but the left-hander couldn’t extend his streak to 4-0 on Wednesday night.

Comeback Interruptus In Canada; Sox Lose, 4-3

 (AP Photo/The Canadian Press, Nathan Denette)Sometime down the road, the Red Sox may look back on this gut-wrenching 4-3 loss with a series of regrets. They may regret letting Rajai Davis hit an inside-the-multiple-errors-HR to score the game's first run. They may regret squandering Mike Napoli's dramatic ninth-inning, two-out, two-run HR that tied the game. They might...
