Peavy helps Red Sox to 7-2 win over White Sox

By KEN POWTAK

Red SoxBOSTON (AP) — Jake Peavy pitched seven strong innings against his former team, Jacoby Ellsbury had three hits and the Boston Red Sox beat the Chicago White Sox 7-2 on Saturday night for their sixth win in seven games.

Ellsbury also scored twice and drove in a run for the AL East-leaders. David Ortiz, who snapped an 0-for-23 stretch with a two-run single in Friday’s win, went 2 for 4 with a walk and an RBI in Boston’s 15-hit attack.

Acquired in a three-team, seven-player deal on July 30 that sent Boston infielder Jose Iglesias to Detroit, Peavy spent four seasons with the White Sox. The 32-year old right-hander went 36-29 after being picked up in a trade from San Diego on July 31, 2009.
