Here are the lineups:
RED SOX (10-9-3)
Pitching: RHP Daniel Bard followed by RHP Andrew Bailey, RHP Scott Atchison, LHP Justin Thomas and RHP Justin Germano.
BLUE JAYS (18-4-1)
Pitching: LHP Aaron Laffey followed by RHP Jason Frasor, RHP Carlos Villaneuva and LHP Luis Perez.
Game time: 1:05 p.m.
TV / Radio: NESN / WEEI
Notes: The Jays have won six straight. ... The Sox have only eight exhibition games left after today, seven in Florida. ... This would seem to be an important game for Bard in his pursuit of a rotation spot. He had two impressive outings, then one that went awry because of a rain delay (and the fact that he came in relief) and a fourth that started poorly and finished well. Bard has had control issues (6 strikeouts, 10 walks in 12.2 innings) and given up too many foul balls due to a reliance on his fastball and changeup. A good performance today should allay whatever fears there are about his conversion.
