CHICAGO –Jake Peavy delivered his second complete game in a White Sox uniform, dominating a 1-0 victory over the Indians.
How it happened: There wasn’t much run support, but it didn’t matter to Jake Peavy. The right-hander went the distance in his second start of the season, blanking the highest scoring team in the American League in the process. The lone White Sox run came home in the first inning when Juan Pierre led off with a double and came home on Adam Dunn’s sacrifice fly.
What it means: It was expected that Peavy would need time to round into form, but he was dominating well earlier than expected. Peavy has said he feels better than at any time since he has been in a White Sox uniform and it showed. It was an impressive showing from a pitcher who has taken criticism for struggles and injuries ever since coming over from the Padres in a trade.
Stat of the game: Peavy is now 4-1 over his last seven starts dating back to 2010.
Up next: White Sox right-hander Gavin Floyd (4-3, 4.22 ERA) will take the mound in the finale of the short two-game series Thursday. Indians right-hander Fausto Carmona (3-3, 3.94) will be on the mound in the 7:10 p.m. start at U.S. Cellular Field.
