Winslow Townson/AP

Even though this will mark only his fifth start, it’s already been a long season for Clay Buchholz. He has yet to get a win and his ERA has slipped to 7.71. But today is an opportunity to turn that around, as he goes head-to-head with another righty struggling to get back into form after an injury, Toronto’s Brandon Morrow.

And last night, Buchholz’s teammate Jake Peavy earned his first win of 2014. Is today the day for Clay? Here are the lineup’s for this afternoon’s game in Toronto:
