Peaches normally do not have a run of sap. If you are seeing a sap like substance, this can be one of 3 things. If the sap is clear and thick, the tree may have peach borers (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/peach/peach-tree-borer.htm), if the sap is amber, it may be peach canker (http://www.nysipm.cornell.edu/factsheets/treefruit/diseases/pc/pc.asp) or if the sap is clear, thin and dripping off the leaves, this is a pest infestation, likely aphids (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/homemade-aphid-control-a-natural-way-to-kill-aphids.htm) or scale (https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/pests/scale-bug-how-to-control-plant-scale.htm)
