Offensively, Dustin Pedroia and Pablo Sandoval have combined for 64 hits and 25 RBI while Hanley Ramirez leads Boston with 22 RBI. The Boston Red Sox have lost four straight games on the road.

The Toronto Blue Jays look to stay hot after winning four of their last five games. The Blue Jays have scored 19 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Blue Jays have won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Josh Donaldson leads Toronto with 39 hits and 20 RBI while Devon Travis and Edwin Encarnacion have combined for 42 RBI. The Toronto Blue Jays have won seven of their last eight games on their home field. R.A. Dickey takes the hill, and he’s 1-3 with a 4.38 ERA and 20 strikeouts this season.

The Red Sox are 7-19 in their last 26 during game 3 of a series and 0-5 in Buchholzs last 5 starts. The Blue Jays are 13-6 in their last 19 during game 3 of a series and 2-5 in Dickeys last 7 starts. The Red Sox are 10-1 in Buchholzs last 11 road starts vs. Blue Jays.
Buchholz just hasn't been good this season and the Blue Jays have been on fire at home as of late. I like the Blue Jays to complete the sweep for the cheap price.
