Boston, MA (Sports Network) – Jarrod Saltalamacchia hit a key late two-run
homer and Jake Peavy enjoyed a successful Beantown debut as Boston downed
Arizona, 5-2, in the middle edition of a three-game interleague set.

Shane Victorino finished with a solo homer and two RBI for the Red Sox, who
bounced back from a series-opening loss on Friday to win
for the sixth time in the last eight outings.

Peavy (9-4) delivered as expected, with the left-hander working seven-plus
innings and allowing two runs on four hits, fanning seven with two walks. Koji
Uehara locked down the victory with a scoreless ninth to earn his 10th save.

Paul Goldschmidt homered and Aaron Hill added an RBI hit for the Diamondbacks,
who have dropped five of their last seven.

Patrick Corbin (12-3) lasted six-plus frames in defeat, charged with eight
hits and three runs.
