Blue Jays - 403 220 0 - 11 14 0The game was stopped by rain in the bottom of the 7th at 9:33 -- and called at 10:35.
Red Sox - 201 001 1 - 5 7 0
Bowden (3-7-7-1-3, 67) was not effective, though he did retire six batters at one point, including three by strikeout. Hunter Jones (1.2-5-4-0-1, 28) did no better.
Kevin Youkilis hit two home runs -- a two-run shot in the first and a solo blast in the third. David Ortiz crushed a dong in the sixth and Dustin Pedroia had an RBI-double in the seventh a minute or two before the rains came.
Lefty Dustin Richardson (#54) made his major league debut with two outs in the fifth. He needed only one pitch to get out of a 1st-and-2nd jam. He allowed two two-out singles in the sixth, but stranded both runners.
Michael Bowden (7.84, 60 ERA+) will start tonight as Josh Beckett has been scratched because of mild back spasms.
Bowden has not started for the Red Sox in 2009, having pitched 10.1 innings in six appearances out of the bullpen. He threw 55 pitches in 2.1 innings against the Yankees on Friday night.
Scott Richmond (5.32, 82 ERA+) / Josh Beckett (3,78, 125 ERA+)
Beckett and Richmond faced each other at Fenway on August 28, pitching only five innings each. Boston won the game 6-5.
Boston can clinch the Wild Card if they win tonight and the Angels beat the Rangers in Anaheim (10 PM).
