The clubhouse was light with the Sox looking to finish off a sweep of their three-game set with Toronto before heading down to Tampa. With Tim Wakefield ailing and Jon Lester being pushed back to Tuesday, Paul Byrd takes the hill for the Sox facing Roy Halladay, who has struggled in his past two starts, allowing eight runs (seven earned) in losses to the Sox and Rays.

Your lineups:

Sox (75-54)
1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
2. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
3. Victor Martinez, 1B
4. Kevin Youkilis, 3B
5. David Ortiz, DH
6. J.D. Drew, RF *Hitting .333 in August with 6 home runs*
7. Rocco Baldelli, LF
8. Jason Varitek, C
9. Alex Gonzalez, SS
P Paul Byrd

Jays (58-69)
1. Marco Scutaro, SS
2. Aaron Hill, 2B *His club-high 31 home runs are the most by any second baseman since Alfonso Soriano hit 35 for Texas in 2005.*
3. Adam Lind, DH
4. Lyle Overbay, 1B
5. Vernon Wells, CF
6. Rod Barajas, C
7. Travis Snider, RF
8. Jose Bautista, LF
9. John McDonald, 3B

Jason Bay gets a day's rest, which almost serves as a long weekend with tomorrow's off day. The Jays dropped Bautista from the leadoff spot yesterday to the eighth spot this afternoon.
