While Roy Halladay is one of the top pitchers in baseball, Fenway Park hasn't been kind to him. The Sox have won his last three starts here and over his career they are 11-6 when Halladay takes the mound at Fenway. Those 17 games have seen the Sox score 4.6 runs a game - well above what we have seen Halladay yield over his career. The Sox are also 43-16 at the Fenz, and the offense is as hot as it has been all season. The Sox have produced 92 runs over their last 12 games, and have scored 54 in their last five appearances at Fenway, or almost 11 a game. The Blue Jays scored all of four runs in a three-game series here early in the season, and that won't get it done here. The Sox get the call in this one.
