Red Sox vs. Diamondbacks: Jake Peavy debuts

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

It's time for Jake Peavy's first start with the Red Sox.

Boston's newest pitcher, Jake Peavy, will take the mound in a Red Sox uniform for the first time Saturday night as the Red Sox attempt to bounce back from a close loss in the first game of the series.

Boston Red Sox (66-45)

  1. Jacoby Ellsbury, CF
  2. Shane Victorino, RF
  3. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
  4. David Ortiz, DH
  5. Mike Napoli, 1B
  6. Jonny Gomes, LF
  7. Jarrod Saltalamacchia, C
  8. Stephen Drew, SS
  9. Brandon Snyder, 3B

Starting Pitcher -- Jake Peavy

Arizona Diamondbacks (56-53)

  1. Gerardo Parra, CF
  2. Aaron Hill, 2B
  3. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
  4. Eric Chavez, DH
  5. Martin Prado, 3B
  6. Cody Ross, RF
  7. Jason Kubel, LF
  8. Wil Nieves, C
  9. Cliff Pennington, SS

Starting Pitcher -- Patrick Corbin

Unfortunately for Peavy, he's got some tough competition in Corbin who's in the midst of quite the breakout season. Corbin's ERA--the third lowest in the league--isn't quite backed up by his peripherals in the same way, say, a Felix Hernandez or Matt Harvey's is, but there's no denying he's a scary opponent to face.

But the Red Sox are scoring runs right now, and if all the Red Sox need from Peavy is to be solid where Lester was just plain bad last night, then Peavy should hopefully be able to come through.
