In the next at-bat, Peavy jumped out 0-2 on Norichika Aoki but failed to put him away. Aoki's single scored another run and was the last batter Peavy faced.

Description: Red Sox starter Jake Peavy (finger) may not be ready in time for the start of the regular season, according to mlb.com.
Insight: Peavy suffered a deep laceration on his left index finger with a fishing knife. He was able to throw on Tuesday but hasn't been cleared to put his glove on. "We've got an opportunity to keep his arm moving, keep him in shape," said manager John Farrell. "He'll stretch a little bit with long toss today and the plan is for him to throw a bullpen tomorrow, without a glove. The precaution we have to take right now is making sure he doesn't perspire too much that may cause bacteria or whatever to get into the incision that's still closing up."
