The Toronto Blue Jays will attempt to get back into the win column as they prepare to meet the Boston Red Sox for a four-game series in an AL East division showdown with the opener set to be staged Monday night at Fenway Park in Boston. This will be the third series of the season between the two division rivals.

Boston took the first set 2-1 in Toronto back in April and then returned north of the border and promptly swept the Blue Jays during Canada’s national festivities. The Blue Jays are in the midst of a ten-game road trip which started in Detroit on Friday with a win but lost the last two contests of their three-game series.

This is an important series for the Jays, who despite sitting tied with the Orioles in last place in the AL East, can still get within striking distance of Boston in the standings. Toronto has had a lot of success at Fenway where they have not lost a series the entire 2016 season. They won six of their last eight contests in Beantown.

RH Marcus Stroman (9-5, 3.28 ERA) will look to maintain his fine form as he takes the mound for the Blue Jays while LH Eduardo Rodriguez (4-2, 3.54 ERA) returns to the rotation as he makes the start for the Red Sox.

Stroman has been the lone bright spot in the Blue Jays’ starting rotation as he is the only starter with a winning record. The 26-year old is in the Top-10 in the league in quality starts and he delivered one in his latest trip to the mound. Stroman allowed just a run on six hits with six strikeouts in seven innings in a 7-2 win over the Houston back on July 8. Stroman was hit hard against Boston back in April when he yielded 6 runs in 4 2/3 innings. The 3-year pro is 4-2 with a 5.07 ERA in 8-career starts against Boston.

Rodriguez, who missed the entire month of June with knee issues, will make his first start since he was rocked for seven runs in 5 2/3 innings against Baltimore on June 1. The 24-year old allowed a run on six hits and no free passes while striking out seven in 6 1/3 innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket last week. Rodriguez was used as a reliever in lone appearance versus the Blue Jays this season. In all, the Venezuela native is 1-3 with a 6.59 ERA in 5-career starts against Toronto.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Red Sox favorites at 115-moneyline with the total sitting at 9½.

MLB Runline Odds at BetOnline the Red Sox were favored by -1½ (+170)
