(Sports Network) – The Toronto Blue Jays, who are coming off a three-game sweep
of the Baltimore Orioles, look to climb up the standings in a crowded AL East
when they host a three-game series against the Boston Red Sox. Matt Kalil Jersey . The Jays completed the
hat trick against Baltimore with a 4-1 win on Wednesday. Colby Rasmus homered in
the win and is batting .333 with three home runs and seven RBI in his last 10
games after going hitless in his 17 prior at-bats. Getting the call for the Jays
tonight will be righty Henderson Alvarez, who is 3-4 with a 3.56 ERA and is
winless in his last three starts. Alvarez did not get a decision on Saturday in

ALvarez was ejected from the game after throwing inside on Ian Kinsler after
serving up back-to-back-to-back home runs. Alvarez has faced the Red Sox twice

on Sunday against Tampa Bay, but allowed just two runs and eight hits and struck

starts this season that Buchholz had allowed less than five runs. “The big thing
was, I stayed out of the middle of the plate, for the most part,” said Buchholz,
who is 4-2 with a 7.19 ERA. “When I missed I missed off the plate, either away
or in. I felt like I was able to throw almost all my pitches for strikes at some
point during the game. I felt this good my past three starts, I just hadnt had
the results.” Buchholz has a terrific chance of putting another impressive
outing on the board, as he is 7-3 lifetime versus the Blue Jays with a 2.58 ERA
in 12 games (11 starts). Hes been even better in Toronto, where he is 5-2 with a
1.62 ERA in seven starts. Boston will be trying to get back into the win column
tonight after failing to complet
