Jays Try To Break The Boston Curse

If there's 1 team that has owned the Jays in 2010, it would be those pesky Boston Red Sox!  Going into tonights game at Rogers Centre, the Jays have a record of 2-8 against their AL East Rivals.

Toronto hands the ball to Shawn Marcum (10-5, 3.44) tonight who is 5-1 with a 2.77 ERA for his career in 8 starts vs the Red Sox.  Boston will counter with Clay Buchholz (12-5, 2.66 ERA) who has been hot as of late going 2-0 with a 2.01 ERA in his last 3 starts.  Lifetime against the Jays Buchholz is 4-3 lifetime against Toronto.

So a pitchers duel it is tonight with Marcum & Buchholz facing two of the best hitting clubs in the American League.  Last time they faced each other was April 27th in Toronto, with Buchholz coming out victorious 2-1.

Vernon Wells returns to the Jays lineup tonight after suffering a fractured toe on Sunday when he made a miraculous catch against Tampa Bay. 

It's going to be a long night for hitters but as strong as these hitters are who am I to say what's going to happen.  I just hope the Jays can break the 2010 curse and walk away with win.
