Tonight, the Red Sox will look to stop their 5 game skid when they square off against the Toronto Blue Jays in game 2 of a 3-game set. The Red Sox turn to struggling starter Clay, Buchholz, who comes into tonight's game with a 2-3 record with 6.17 ERA, but he has a 10-5 record against the Jays and a 2.52 ERA. His 10 wins are more than he has against any other team.

The Red Sox will be going up against rightie Drew Hutchinson, who is coming in on a high after tossing his first complete game shutout in his career against the Texas Rangers. While the Red Sox have been trending downward recently, the Jays have been heading in the opposite direction, winning 11 of their last 16 dating back to May 4th.

Here's the lineup the Red Sox will be putting out against the Jays tonight:

Sizemore, CF
Pedroia, 2B
Ortiz, DH
Gomes, LF
Pierzynski, C
Victorino, RF
Carp, 1B
Bogaerts, SS
Holt, 3B
Buccholz (2-3 6.17), P
