Clay Buchholz (L), Brandon Morrow (R)

After winning last night, the Boston Red Sox look to do it again in the middle of a three-game set with the Toronto Blue Jays this afternoon at the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:07 p.m. The game will be broadcast on NESN in the Red Sox television market. If you live in the Blue Jays market, you can catch the game on Rogers SportsNet. And if you can’t catch the game on television, you can always listen on the 2014 Red Sox Radio Network.

Clay Buchholz looks for his first win in his fifth start of 2014. In his previous four starts, Buchholz is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA. He made three starts against the Blue Jays in 2013 and was 1-1 with a 1.71 ERA. He’s made 18 career appearances (17 starts) against the Jays and is 9-5 with a 2.44 ERA. 10 of those starts have come at the Rogers Centre where he is 7-2 with a 1.49 ERA.

Brandon Morrow toes the slab for the fifth time in 2014. In his previous four starts, Morrow is 1-1 with a 5.03 ERA. He picked up a no decision in his lone start against the Red Sox in 2013 after allowing three runs in five innings of work. He’s made 17 appearances (nine starts) against the visiting nine and is 1-3 with a 7.99 ERA.
