The Boston Red Sox face the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday, September 4th at Fenway Park for game two of a doubleheader. 

The Red Sox and Blue Jays are set to participate in one of five doubleheaders in the MLB on Friday. The Blue Jays defeated the Red Sox by the final score of 6-2 on Thursday night in game one of this series. Toronto was down 2-0 and was no-hit through 6.0 innings by Martin Perez. The Blue Jays went on to score one run in the seventh and one run in the eighth to tie the game at 2-2 and force extra innings. Teoscar Hernandez hit a go-ahead three-run home run in the top of the tenth inning to give the Blue Jays a 5-2 lead. The Jays would add another run off a solo shot by Lourdes Gurriel Jr. Boston could not find any offense in the bottom half of the tenth, and the Blue Jays won their 20th game of the year. The Blue Jays are now tied for second place in the AL East with the Yankees and are 5.0 games behind the Rays for first.

The Toronto Blue Jays are projected to start right-hander Ross Stripling in game two of this doubleheader. Stripling is 3-1 with a 5.61 ERA through his first 33.2 innings of the season. Stripling will be making his Blue Jays debut on Friday, as he was just acquired by the Los Angeles Dodgers at the trade deadline. 

The Boston Red Sox are projected to bring right-hander Chris Mazza to the bump for game two. Mazza is 0-1 with a 7.88 ERA through his first 8.0 innings of the season with the Red Sox. Mazza allowed three earned runs through 2.1 innings against the Nationals in his most recent outing. 

Expect the line for this game and all of the other game two's on the schedule to be out sometime later on in the day, more closer to game time due to the uncertainties with probable pitchers and lineups. In game two of this doubleheader, I like the Toronto Blue Jays to come out on top. Stripling was not sharp with the Dodgers this season, but he has been given a second chance with the Blue Jays and this is where I think he can shine. I will take the Blue Jays on the money line.
