After leaving Saturday's game with right quad tightness, Pablo Sandoval is in the Red Sox lineup for the series finale against the Blue Jays Sunday afternoon. The Red Sox will be looking to avoid a three-game sweep. Mike Napoli is out for a second straight day, but manager John Farrell said it is similar to what he did with David Ortiz and Pablo Sandoval -- giving him a few days down to clear his head. He said he would be available to pinch-hit, unlike he was on Saturday. Mookie Betts is out once again after a vicious collision with the right-center field wall Friday, but he is improved and will take batting practice on the field prior to the game. Blake Swihart will catch Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez. For an extensive look at the matchups, click here.
