Peavy gets his first start tonight

Jake Peavy is on the mound tonight for his first game with the Red Sox as they host the Arizona Diamondbacks.

As I write this, the Sox are up 5-2 in the top of the ninth. Peavy went seven innings, struck out seven and gave up two earned runs. That's a nice start and hopefully an indication of solid performances to come on the mound from a guy eager to get into the post season this year.

Sox win the game 5-2 on a game ending double play. Salty hit a rain-maker 2-run homer . . . nice stuff all around. A Rays loss will give Boston a two run lead in the East.
