Lineups: Sox v. Jays

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.
