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.
