Peavy, meanwhile, escaped a tight spot in the third when DeJesus grounded back to the mound to begin an inning-ending double play after Yunel Escobar and Lobaton singled with one out. Peavy wasn’t able to do it again after Escobar doubled off the left-field wall to begin the sixth.

DeJesus, acquired in an August trade and also in the postseason for the first time, lined a 1-1 pitch to right field to drive in Escobar.

Peavy allowed one run, five hits and struck out three in 5 2-3 innings.

NOTES: Former major leaguer Rocco Baldelli, a Rhode Island native who played for both the Rays and Red Sox, threw the ceremonial first pitch. ... Rookie RF Wil Myers was back in Tampa Bay’s lineup after leaving Game 3 with leg cramps. ... Victorino was hit by a pitch four times in the series, twice in Game 4. ... Lobaton’s game-ending homer Monday night landed in the giant fish tank beyond center field. Only two others players — Miguel Cabrera earlier this season and Luis Gonzalez in 2007 — have homered into the tank that has been home to cownose rays since it was installed in 2006.
