After winning 8-5 last night, the Boston Red Sox look to make it two in-a-row this afternoon in the middle game of a three-game set in the Battle For the Basement with the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. First pitch is scheduled for 1:07 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Yankees television market, you can catch the game on Rogers SportsNet and TVA Sports (French broadcast).
