The Boston Red Sox are suddenly playing like a team that thinks it has a chance at a postseason berth. The Red Sox will find out where they stand within the American League East after a stretch of 13 straight against division opponents, beginning with a four-game series at Toronto that starts on Monday. The Blue Jays want to make some noise down the stretch as well and are hoping a series win over the weekend pulled them out of a lengthy funk.The Red Sox are winners of four straight and seven of the last eight, leaning on a strong run of starting pitching as the offense begins to come around. Toronto was the class of the division for the first two-plus months but is just 13-24 over the last 37 games and limped into the All-Star break with losses in eight of 10. The Blue Jays dropped the series opener to Texas on Friday but rebounded over the weekend, earning a 4-1 victory on Saturday and battling back after squandering a lead and pulling out a 9-6 winon Sunday.TV: 7:07 p.m. ET, NESN (Boston), RSN (Toronto)PITCHING MATCHUP: Red Sox RH John Lackey (10-6, 3.79 ERA) vs. Blue Jays RH Drew Hutchison (6-8, 4.16)Lackey was in a rut prior to the All-Star break, going 2-2 with an 8.10 ERA in his last four starts.
