Wite Sox Vs. Angels: Jake Peavy Gets A No Decision In Return, But Chicago Gets 6-4 Win In Extras

It took more than the scheduled nine innings, but the Chicago White Sox were able to complete a late rally against the Los Angeles Angels and earn a 6-4 win in Jake Peavy's first start of the season. Peavy looked solid if unspectacular in his return, giving up four runs on seven its over six innings after missing almost a year following shoulder surgery.

The White Sox trailed by three runs heading into the final two innings, but they scored one run in eighth, and put two up on the board in the ninth to send the game into extras. They got some help from Angels reliever Kevin Jepsen in the tenth inning, as he threw a wild pitch on an intentional walk that allowed Alexei Ramirez to score what would prove to be the winning run from third. Adam Dunn had four hits for the White Sox, including a home run.

Jake Peavy To Make First Start Of Season For White Sox

Though their modest win streak was snapped on Tuesday night against Anaheim, the White Sox still have a reason to look forward to Wednesday night's contest against the Angels.

The late game on the west coast will feature the much awaited return of starter Jake Peavy. Peavy, who has been rehabbing from shoulder surgery, has not made a start for the White Sox since July of the 2010 season. But even despite his long absence, his return has been pegged by many fans as the point in time when the 2011 White Sox will finally be able to put all the pieces together and make a sustained winning run. Peavy has started three games against the Angels over his career. He's 0-2 with a 5.17 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across those games. Few current Angels have much experience against Peavy, but of those that do, Torii Hunter is 3-for-7 with a double, and Macier Izturis is 1-for-3, also with a double.

Pitching for the Angels will be Tyler Chatwood. Chatwood, a rookie, is currently 2-1 with a 4.08 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. He started against the White Sox in April. In that start he pitched seven innings, giving up just one run on five hits and two walks, while striking out three. In that game, Juan Pierre was 2-for-2 against Chatwood, while Carlos Quentin, Alexei Ramirez, and Alex Rios each collected hits.

The weather in Anaheim is forecast to be sunny and clear, with a game time temperature in the mid-60s. First pitch is at 9:05 P.M., CDT, and the game will be televised on WGN.
