Jarrod Saltalamacchia Says Jake Peavy ‘Threw the Ball Well’ in Loss to Rays (Video)

Thursday night’s outing was a bit of a rough one for Jake Peavy

Peavy allowed just three runs in the game, but he struggled with his control, tying a season high with five walks over six innings. The game was tied when the right-hander departed, but Boston’s bullpen crumbled in the eighth, allowing the Rays to escape with a 4-3 win in the final meeting of the regular season between the two teams. 

Though Jarrod Saltalamacchia admitted that Peavy made a few mistakes throughout his six innings of work, he was pleased with his pitcher’s outing overall. Hear what else the catcher had to say in the video above.
