Red Sox 3, Blue Jays 7: A classic Jake Peavy loss

The Red Sox' momentum proved insufficient to overcome Jake Peavy's losing habit Tuesday night in Toronto. The Red Sox lost a game for the first time in ten days Tuesday night, bringing their five-game winning streak to an abrupt end. Recent weeks had seen Jake Peavy's losses shift from well-earned to hard-luck, but tonight was a return to unfortunate form for the veteran righty. To be fair to Peavy, he was throwing hard and racked up a fair few strikeouts, but in the end it was a classic 2014 Peavy performance featuring all the unfortunate hallmarks, starting with a costly walk in the...

Minor league roundup: Wick makes most of promotion

Reports began circling this week that the Red Sox were scouting Cardinals outfield prospect Rowan Wick, in case the Cardinals made a push for Jake Peavy as the trade deadline neared.

Rapid Reaction: Jays 7, Red Sox 3

TORONTO -- This is the parallel universe in which Jake Peavy finds himself.
