4:15 p.m.: After a 13-game stretch against foes from the AL West, NL West and AL Central, the Red Sox finally get back to the business of divisional play Tuesday night. The Sox open a three-game set in Toronto against a struggling Blue Jays team that has dropped four of its last five games. On the hill for the Jays will be Todd Redmond, a 28-year-old right-hander with just six major league starts under his belt. Redmond (1-1, 4.22 ERA) was roughed up in his last outing, allowing three runs on seven hits against the Angels before being lifted after just 3 2/3 innings. Boston, which retained a hold on first place in the division despite dropping three of four in Kansas City over the weekend, will counter with Ryan Dempster (6-8, 4.67 ERA). Dempster has been far from a lights-out starter this season, but the Red Sox have had tremendous success with him on the mound of late. The veteran righty has not lost since June 19, and the club has won seven of his last eight starts, including five in a row. A return to the AL East also means a return to standard start times. First pitch from Rogers Centre is scheduled for 7:07 p.m. ET. Filed under: Boston Red Sox, Headlines, Live Blog, Toronto Blue Jays, Zack Cox
