Peavy Ready For Game 3 Start: ‘This Is Why I Play The Game’
" BOSTON (CBS)  - When Jake Peavy was traded to the Boston Red Sox in July, he was hoping to get an opportunity to pitch for a championship.

That opportunity comes Saturday night in St. Louis, when the 32-year-old Peavy gets the start in Game 3 against the Cardinals. With things all knotted at 1-1, not only is it the biggest game of his career but it’s now the biggest game of the season for Boston.

“This is why I play the game,” Peavy said Friday shortly after the team arrived in St. Louis. “This is why we all, I would like to think, play the game, to be a world champion; to be the best in the world at what you do at the highest level.”

“I’m as prepared as I’ll ever be, physically, mentally, and we’ll go out there and see if we can execute pitch by pitch, and find a way to win.”
