Peavy strong in Boston debut, beats Diamondbacks

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (AP) -

Jake Peavy allowed four hits in seven-plus innings to lead the Red Sox to a 5-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night, winning his first start since coming to Boston at the trade deadline.

Peavy (8-5) struck out seven and walked two, giving up Paul Goldschmidt's homer in the fourth and leaving with a 3-1 lead after a leadoff single in the eighth. He walked slowly from the mound as the crowd rose to a standing ovation, tipping his cap to the fans while crossing the first-base line on his way to the dugout.

Shane Victorino and Jarrod Saltalamacchia homered for Boston. Koji Uehara pitched the ninth for his 10th save.

Patrick Corbin (12-3) allowed three runs on eight hits in six-plus innings for his second consecutive loss.
