Jake Peavy Shoulders Blame for Hard-Luck Loss in Toronto (Video)

Jake Peavy turned in his second solid outing in three starts for the Red Sox, but Boston’s inability to push runners across left the right-hander on the hook.

Peavy held the Blue Jays scoreless through six innings Thursday night before running into trouble in the seventh. Pitching with a 1-0 lead, Peavy allowed the first two runners in the inning to reach (via error and single) before Brett Lawrie drove in the game-tying run with a base hit of his own.

Craig Breslow entered to try to limit the damage, but he promptly allowed an RBI single to pinch hitter Mark DeRosa, with the go-ahead run being charged to Peavy.

Hear the starter’s evaluation of his performance in the video above.
