Red Sox look to take care of business in Toronto

Red Sox look to take care of business in Toronto

The glass half full crowd will point to the fact that the Red Sox opened up a three-game lead in the division race over the Rays this past weekend. The soulless, half empty people will say that Boston is on the verge of a slump, having dropped three-of-four to the Royals this past weekend.

No matter which way you go, one thing is certain: Every series from here on out is a big one in the Sox's quest to play October baseball. John Farrell's crew opens up a three-game set tonight in Toronto before returning home to face the Yankees (possibly with a chance to bury them for good in 2013) this weekend.

Here are the upcoming pitching matchups:

Tuesday, Aug. 13 at Toronto - Ryan Dempster (6-8, 4.67) vs. Todd Redmond (1-1, 4.22)

Wednesday, Aug. 14 at Toronto - Jon Lester (10-7, 4.37) vs. Josh Johnson (2-8, 6.20)

Thursday, Aug. 15 at Toronto - Jake Peavy (9-4, 4.50) vs. Mark Buehrle (8-7, 4.43)
