Boston at Toronto

2 units on Toronto +120 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Sox have eleven players on the DL including Pedrois, Ellsbury, Martinez and Varitek. Who would have thought Darnell McDonald, Daniel Nava and Kevin Cash would be seeing regular playing time for Boston? The result is not unexpected as the Sox have lost four in a row including an embarrassing home loss to the Orioles. Jon Lester gives them some hope tonight as he is 10-3 with a 2.76 ERA. But, Toronto starts Ricky Romero who has been no slouch. At home he is 4-1 with a 1.45 ERA. And, Boston's bullpen has been horrendous on the road this season (4-9 with a 5.85 ERA with just 56% saves). The Red Sox have not fared well in division games this year where they are under .500. I like the Blue Jays at home here.
