Red Sox vs. Orioles: Sox seek momentum behind Jake Peavy

Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports

Jake Peavy's on a roll, and he's looking to take the Red Sox with him.

The Red Sox will turn to Jake Peavy Sunday night as they look to turn a decent run into a legitimate hot streak against the Orioles.

Today's Lineups

BALTIMORE ORIOLES BOSTON RED SOX
Nick Markakis - RF Grady Sizemore - CF
Nelson Cruz - DH Dustin Pedroia - 2B
Chris Davis - 1B David Ortiz - DH
Adam Jones - CF Mike Napoli - 1B
Matt Wieters - C Jonny Gomes - LF
J.J. Hardy - SS Daniel Nava - RF
David Lough - LF Xander Bogaerts - SS
Jonathan Schoop - 2B A.J. Pierzynski - C
Ryan Flaherty - 3B Brock Holt - 3B
Ubaldo Jimenez - RHP Jake Peavy - RHP

So what constitutes a hot streak? A win tonight would make it four victories in five games for the Red Sox. That's not bad for a team that couldn't seem to string together two in a row in the first couple of weeks. But to get there, they'll need to win on a night when Jonny Gomes is batting fifth against a right-handed pitcher. And it's at the expense of Jackie Bradley Jr. to boot, which means that Boston's outfield defense is just this side of a catastrophe.

The good news is that Jake Peavy has more or less been money so far this season, managing to work through some less-than-ideal circumstances to put up three competitive outings. Well, these circumstances are certainly not ideal. Let's see if he can make it four-for-four.

First pitch is at 7:05 p.m. EST with broadcasts on ESPN and WEEI.
