Dickey, RHP (13-12, 4.21 ERA) vs. Felix Doubront, LHP (10-6, 4.15 ERA)                                             Yard: Fenway Park   Watch it: NESN  Hear it:  WEEI The Matchup     Record: 79-68 (Last AL East | 22 GB) Record: 93-61 (1st AL East | Magic#: 1) On road: 32-42 At home: 51-27 Streak: W1 Streak: W1        Leaders at the plate  Leaders at the plate Average: Lind (.284) Average: Ortiz (.307) Homers: Encarnacion (36) Homers: Ortiz (28) RBI: Encarnacion (104) RBI: Ortiz (96) Leaders on the mound Leaders on the mound  Wins: Dickey (13) Wins: Lester (14) ERA: Redmond (3.82) | Santos (1.71) ERA: Buchholz (1.51) | Uehara (1.16) K's: Dickey (163) K's: Lester (165) Last time The Sox lost 2-of-3 in Toronto in mid-August.The Sox won game 1 in 11 innings by way of a 2-run single off the bat of Shane Victorino. That was followed by another extra-inning game, which the Jays won in 10. Game 3 was sort of a pitchers duel between Peavy and Buehrle, with Buehrle coming out on top. Both Sox losses were by 1 run. This time Laser Show: Clay Buchholz Goin' with a pitcher again. I've said it before, primarily while drunk, that Clay Buchholz will not lose a game this season. I am going to stick by that statement. I think I jinxed him. Pitch Around: Edwin Encarnacion & Jose Bautista Just look up the history.  Don't Fall Behind: R.A. Dickey & Mark Buerhle R.A. Dickey is 4-0 in his last 5 starts, and Buerhle pitched one hell of a game against the Sox in their last meeting. We don't need those guys shutting down the Sox now. How we see it goin' down The Sox will have little issues with the Jays this weekend, will clinch the division tonight, and come away with the sweep. .
