TORONTO - Mark Buehrle eyes up a historic win Friday night when the Toronto Blue Jays welcome the Boston Red Sox to town for the opener of a three-game set between American League East rivals. Buehrle enters with a major league-best 0.64 ERA through four starts. He looks to become the first pitcher in the majors to reach five wins as well as the first Blue Jays pitcher ever to begin a season with five straight victories. "Hes just locked in right now," manager Jay Gibbons said. "He even admitted in spring training he hadnt felt this good in a long time. But he competes, hes a great competitor. "One thing about Buehrle is he pitches to win, he doesnt pitch for stats. You get guys in this game who pitch for stats. He pitches to win, and you need more guys like that." In his last start, Buehrle gave up just four hits in seven-plus shutout innings of a 5-0 win at Cleveland. Toronto will try to avoid its first three-game slide of the season after falling at home to Baltimore on Thursday, 11-4. While things have gone well so far this season for Buehrle, Bostons Jake Peavy is still in search of his first win. This marks the fifth time through the rotation for the right-hander. He had given up a total of just four earned runs over his first three starts before getting tagged for five runs on a season-high 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings against Baltimore his last time out. However, Peavy has a 2.29 ERA over his last five starts against Toronto. Boston has lost three of its last four after Thursdays lopsided 14-5 setback to the division-leading Yankees. "Every team goes through slumps hitting, goes through slumps defensively," shortstop Xander Bogaerts said. "Its part of the game. Were definitely going to get better." On the injury front, outfielder Shane Victorino was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Thursday after missing the first 22 games of the season with a strained right hamstring. He played right field and batted second in Thursdays game and went 1-for-5 with a double. "This is something we have been waiting for. Shanes return will help solidify our outfield defense and also the top of the order," manager John Farrell said. "It is good to have him back in the lineup. Boston went 11-8 against the Blue Jays last season.

Some storylines to consider: - After last years improbable Final Four appearance, Wichita State heads into the Tournament as an undefeated #1 seed. Will the Shockers live up to the hype or wilt under superior competition? - Last years champions, the Louisville Cardinals, defeated the UCONN Huskies on Saturday to win the AAC Conference title. Though they seemed to have the credentials for a top seed, they head into the Tournament as a #4. Has the selection committee underestimated the defending champions resolve or was it right to place Rick Pitinos charges where it did? - Which 2014 first-round NBA Draft hopeful will propel his team the furthest? Dukes Jabari Parker? Marcus Smart of Oklahoma State? Kentuckys Julius Randle? - How about the 35 Canadians in the Big Dance? Can Kansas superstar Andrew Wiggins lead the Jayhawks to a fourth national title? Are Melvin Ejim, Naz Long and Big 12-champion Iowa State primed for a deep run? With a loss in last years final, can Nik Stauskas and Michigan make that final step this year? So go ahead and fill our your bracket. Its cool. We wont tell your boss. ' ' '
