Toronto Blue Jays



Boston Red Sox


Friday, September 17, 7:10 PM ET, Fenway Park

12-7, 4.12 ERA http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/Cecil.jpg...http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/bos-lackey.jpg 12-10, 4.45 ERA
Brett Cecil, LHP...John Lackey, RHP

Cecil: Location was a problem when he allowed seven runs in two-plus innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday. That matched his shortest outing of the season, when he gave up eight runs in two innings to Texas on May 14, also a no-decision.

Lackey: The righty pitched well enough to get a win in his last start, but he didn't have much in the way of support and lost at Oakland. In seven innings, he gave up six hits and three runs. In 15 starts at Fenway this season, Lackey is 9-4 with a 4.36 ERA.

Saturday, September 18, 7:10 PM ET, Fenway Park

12-9, 3.72 ERA http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/tor-romero.jpg...http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/bos-beckett.jpg 5-4, 5.83 ERA
Ricky Romero, LHP...Josh Beckett, RHP

Romero: Going for his team-leading 13th win, Romero is coming off a clunker at home against Tampa Bay on Saturday. He allowed six runs, three hits and three walks in four innings. It was the first time since July 9 he didn't go five innings.

Beckett: While Beckett hasn't been dominant, he has settled into a nice groove. He has gone at least six innings while giving up three runs or fewer in each of his last four starts. In eight Fenway starts this year, Beckett is 2-2 with a 5.65 ERA.

Sunday, September 19, 1:35 PM ET, Fenway Park

12-7, 3.58 ERA http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/tor-marcum.jpg...http://i954.photobucket.com/albums/ae23/snarlyb/bos-lester.jpg 17-8, 3.17 ERA
Shaun Marcum, RHP...Jon Lester, LHP

Marcum: Fenway Park will be a test for Marcum, who has yielded a team-high 22 homers this year. Since reeling off three straight wins after the All-Star break, he has two victories in eight starts. He has worked six IP or more in each of his last six starts.

Lester: Lester has been at his best lately, striking out 10 or more in his last four starts. He is the first Red Sox lefty to record double-digit punchouts in four straight starts. Lester's last start was one of his best: three hits, one run, 12 K's.

Pitching has been a disaster.
