The Sox just swept the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field, and now come home for a three-game series of the lowly Seattle Mariners. On Friday, the South Siders will send Jake Peavy to the mound against Seattle's 26-year old ace Felix Hernandez.

Peavy enters at 6-1 with a 3.07 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. Hernandez is 4-4 with a 3.17 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.
