Stat of the Day: David Ortiz’s two-run homer Friday night was his first at Fenway Park since June 9.

Notes: Peavy is making his Red Sox debut after being acquired in a three-team deal … He has more games, wins, innings pitched, and strikeouts against the Diamondbacks than any other team in the majors but he hasn’t faced them since 2009 when he was with the Padres … It’s his first start against the Diamondbacks as an American League pitcher … In his last outing, Peavy threw 118 pitches over seven innings, giving up four earned runs in a win over the Detroit Tigers … All-star left-hander Patrick Corbin is making his first start against the Red Sox and just his second career interleague start … He’s given up just one run in each of his past four starts … Jacoby Ellsbury has a leadoff hit in each of the past three game. He’s currently on an eight game hit streak, hitting .324 (12 of 27) with two doubles, a triple, a homer and six runs scored … Stephen Drew is hitting .360 (9 of 25) with three homers and nine RBIs in his past seven games … Martin Prado is hitting .358 (19-for-53) in 14 games since the All-Star break for the D’Backs … The Sox are 7-3 in interleague play this year. They remain a game ahead of Tampa Bay for the AL East lead.
