After a long home stand the Boston Red Sox have a day of travel before they play 6 straight days on the road. The team performed excellently this past week winning 6 of their 7 games they played, including a sweep of the Houston Astros. This week will be slightly more difficult, going north of the border to Toronto and then traveling to Texas to face the Rangers.
Monday is a day of much needed rest for the Red Sox. They will use this day to travel to Toronto and get settled before they start their series on Tuesday.
In the first game of the series against Toronto the Red Sox will hand the ball to Jon Lester. Lester has been fantastic this season, he currently has a record of 4-0. Lester pitched against Toronto on April 7th where he shut down the Blue Jays offense, pitching 7 shutout innings of baseball. Toronto will give the ball to Brandon Morrow who is currently 0-2 with a 5.27 ERA. First pitch is scheduled for 7:07 and will be televised on NESN.
