The Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox take the field in a Wednesday MLB matchup.
The Boston Red Sox needed ten innings to subdue Toronto 10-7 on Tuesday night. Boston starter Drew Pomeranz gave up to runs in 4.2 frames with Craig Kimbrel serving up a homer in the 9th before Tyler Thornburg surrendered a two run jack in the 10th.

The Red Sox pounded out nine hits and walked five times with JD Martinez and Mitch Moreland going deep and driving in four apiece while Jackie Bradley Jr. smacked a two run bomb.
Brian Johnson toes the rubber at the Blue Jays for the second time this season. Johnson defeated the Yankees last time out with six runs scoring on six hits including three long balls over five frames.
The Toronto Blue Jays struggled on the mound late and the Boston bats took full advantage in Tuesday’s defeat. Marcus Stroman gave Toronto seven strong innings with an unearned run scoring while Ryan Tepera allowed four runs in the 8th followed by Ken Giles who was charged with five runs in the 10th.
The Blue Jays racked up 13 hits and walked six times with Justin Smoak going solo while Kevin Pillar and Deveon Travis each went deep and knocked in a pair.
The Blue Jays have named Mike Hauschild as Wednesday’s starter versus the Red Sox. Hauschild comes off his first career win with six scoreless innings of relief in a 7-3 victory at Seattle.
Under is 10-2 in Boston last 12 on astroturf and Boston are 20-6 in their last 26 Wednesday games and Boston are 40-15 in their last 55 overall. Over is 9-2 in Toronto last 11 overall and Toronto are 7-19 in their last 26 Wednesday games. Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Toronto and Boston are 22-8 in the last 30 meetings.
I have no idea what to expect from Hauschild and Johnson is not my favorite so I might just sit this one out…
