With left-hander J.A. Happ on the mound for the Blue Jays, the Red Sox will give Jackie Bradley Jr. a day off in center field. The incomprehensibly versatile Brock Holt will start there, with Jonny Gomes starting in left and Daniel Nava sitting against the lefty. Despite the presence of a lefty on the mound, Stephen Drew will start at short for a Red Sox team that, in 16 games in July, has scored 83 runs -- one fewer than the club plated in 28 games in June. David Ross will be behind the plate for Jake Peavy. For a look at how Red Sox players have fared against Happ and how Blue Jays hitters have done against Peavy, click here.
