4:54 p.m.: The Jake Peavy era will officially begin Saturday. Peavy will start Saturday’s game against the Diamondbacks, according to manager John Farrell. That allows the Red Sox to split up their two left-handed starters, Jon Lester and Felix Doubront. Farrell also announced a roster move involving two pitchers prior to Thursday’s game. Steven Wright has been called up while Jose De La Torre has been optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket. Brandon Workman, who started Tuesday’s game, was optioned to Triple-A to make room for Peavy. He’ll likely be available to pitch for Pawtucket on Sunday, and he’ll eventually return to the major league club as a reliever. 4:33 p.m.: Let’s take a look at the lineups, shall we? Red Sox (65-44) Jacoby Ellsbury, CF Shane Victorino, RF Dustin Pedroia, 2B David Ortiz, DH Mike Carp, 1B Stephen Drew, SS Daniel Nava, LF Ryan Lavarnway, C Brock Holt, 3B Ryan Dempster, RHP Mariners (50-57) Brad Miller, SS Nick Franklin, 2B Kyle Seager, 3B Kendrys Morales, DH Michael Saunders, CF Justin Smoak, 1B Endy Chavez, RF Dustin Ackley, LF Henry Blanco, C Felix Hernandez, RHP 8 a.m. ET: It took five hours and three minutes, but the Red Sox got the job done Wednesday. They’ll now look for a series sweep Thursday. The Red Sox have taken the first two games of their series against the Mariners. Brandon Workman was excellent on the mound Tuesday as the Red Sox’ offense smacked three homers en route to an 8-2 win. Then, a Jake Peavy trade later, the Sox won a 15-inning marathon Wednesday that ended when Stephen Drew ripped a game-winning hit down the right field line. Boston will have its work cut out for it Thursday, though, as Seattle will be rolling out one of baseball’s elite pitchers in Felix Hernandez. The Red Sox will counter with Ryan Dempster, who picked up a win in Baltimore his last time out. Thursday’s first pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET.
