Blue Jays vs. Peavy: Encarnacion 5-21, Reyes 5-21, Bautista 3-17, Cabrera 5-11, Lawrie 3-12, Rasmus 1-6, Navarro 1-3, Sierra 2-2.

Stat of the Day: The Red Sox have the third-worst record in the American League and the second-worst run differential. The Red Sox have been outscored by 17 runs. Only the Astros (minus-44) have been worse.

Notes: A night after an embarrassing 14-5 beating at the hands of the Yankees, the Red Sox have to deal with the hottest starter in the American League. Buehrle has allowed two runs over 28 innings so far. He has given up 21 hits, walked five and struck out 19. … Buehrle is 8-9, 4.35 against the Red Sox in his career over 24 games, 23 starts. … Peavy, a former White Sox teammate of Buehrle, is 2-1, 3.51 in six starts against the Jays. That includes allowing two runs over six innings last Aug. 15. Peavy pitched well in his first three starts before allowing five runs on 10 hits in 5.2 innings against Baltimore on Sunday. … The Sox were 11-8 against Toronto last season. … Napoli has reached base in 19 consecutive games. … Pedroia has gone 134 at-bats since his last home run, that on Sept. 17. … Bradley is 2 of his last 16. … Bogaerts has an eight-game hit streak.
