The division rival Toronto Blue Jays and Boston Red Sox are set to renew hostilities on Thursday when they meet at Fenway Park.

Left hander Francisco Liriano will take the mound for the Blue Jays to start this game. Liriano is 5-5 this season with a 6.04 ERA.

Starting this game for the Red Sox will be Doug Fister. The right hander has a 6.75 ERA to go along with a 0-3 record this season.

Liriano was knocked around for five runs on three hits and four walks in two-plus innings against the Tigers, but told reporters he did not want to skip a start following Tuesday’s 25-pitch bullpen session. He held Boston scoreless on four hits over 5 1/3 innings on April 19, but was tagged for five runs on seven hits in six innings by the Red Sox on July 1. Pedroia is 7-for-17 against Liriano.

Fister was claimed off waivers from the Los Angeles Angels and made a decent season debut against his former club, taking the loss with six innings of three-run ball. He did not factor in the decision in his following start, allowing a three-run homer among four hits over five innings. Fister then was touched for six runs at Texas in 3 2/3 innings before giving up three runs in relief versus the Yankees.

Oddsmakers currently have the Red Sox listed as 112-moneyline favorites versus the Blue Jays, while the game’s total is sitting at 10½.

After watching his team play 58 innings in a four-day span, Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell was grateful for a stress-free win on the eve of Thursday afternoon’s finale of a four-game series versus the visiting Toronto Blue Jays. “The fact that we played that game in under three hours, it felt like we were only at halftime,” Farrell told reporters Wednesday.

Second baseman Dustin Pedroia collected a pair of hits and three RBIs in Wednesday’s 5-1 win as the Red Sox improved to 4-3 on their eight-game homestand to open a three-game lead atop the American League East. Waiver-wire acquisition Doug Fister, a loser of eight straight decisions dating to Aug. 22, 2016, could be pitching to keep his spot his in the rotation as he makes his fourth start of the year. His opponent, Toronto left-hander Francisco Liriano, was forced to leave his last start at Detroit due to soreness in his neck but appears on track to start after throwing a bullpen session on Tuesday. Second baseman Darwin Barney is in a 2-for-22 slump for the Blue Jays, who are 2-4 on their 10-game road trip.

Last time out for Boston, they were a 5-1 winner as they battled the Blue Jays on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Red Sox at -133 were rewarded, while the 6 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

In their last action, Toronto was a 5-1 loser on the road against the Red Sox. Bettors on Boston at -133 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (6) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
