Jake Peavy’s Aggressiveness, Competitive Nature Will Be on Display in Right-Hander’s Debut (Video)


Jake Peavy makes his much-anticipated debut on the mound for the Red Sox tonight.

Since being acquired at the trade deadline Tuesday, the right-hander has created a buzz in Boston, with Red Sox Nation excited for the competitiveness he brings to the field. In only his second start ever at Fenway, Peavy’s adrenaline is sure to be pumping as he takes on Patrick Corbin and the Diamondbacks.

Check out the above video to hear what NESN’s Adam Pellerin and Tim Wakefield had to say about Peavy’s first start in a Red Sox uniform.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
