Notes: Peavy is 4-0 with a 2.89 ERA in his last five starts against the Indians... In six starts in May, Peavy went 0-2 with a 5.89 ERA ... While they have struggled with righthanded starters in 2014, the Red Sox are 13-7 against lefthanders this season... The Red Sox have won 11 of the last 16 against the Indians... Grady Sizemore (8-for-48 against lefties) is not in tonight's lineup as Milton native Alex Hassan gets the start in right field for Boston... Sizemore is batting .196 with no homers and just one RBI in his last 14 games... The Indians No. 2 and No. 3 batters -- Michael Brantley and Asdrubal Cabrera -- are a combined 5-for-27 with 10 strikeouts against Peavy... This will be the third major league start for the 24-year-old House who was called up May 17.
