Winners of six of their last 10 ballgames, the Toronto Blue Jays enter Sunday's contest against the Boston Red Sox with a chance to secure a sweep. Davis Schneider's addition to the Jays lineup has seemed to help things turn up a notch and the wins are coming because of it. Before heading to Cleveland to take on the Guardians for a four-game set, the Jays must swipe one more away from their division rivals at Fenway.

Probable starting pitchers

  • The Blue Jays are set to send Chris Bassitt to the mound to make his 24th start of the season. The 34-year-old is 10-6 with an ERA right at 4.00 and has been turning in some solid outings as of late. Last time he took the mound, the nine-year veteran went six innings against the Orioles with seven strikeouts.
  • Left-hander Brennan Bernadino is going to make his sixth "start" of the season for the Red Sox, functioning as an opener. The 31-year-old Indy Ball find has been a solid contributor for the club this year, making 33 appearances with a 2.72 ERA, 2.83 FIP and 172 ERA+ in just over 36 innings of work.
