Jake Peavy didn’t actually take the loss for the Red Sox’ 9-6 Friday night defeat to the Kansas City Royals. But he’ll take the blame, anyway.
Peavy’s known around baseball as one of the game’s toughest competitors, so his attitude was no surprise. Though Peavy struggled Friday, yielding 10 hits in five-plus innings, he actually left the game with a two-run lead.
Still, Peavy knows that when your offense gives you six runs, you have to get the job done. Check out everything the right-hander had to say after the loss in the video below.
