Jake Peavy Dominant in 7-0 Victory Over Twins

When White Sox General Manager Kenny Williams acquired Jake Peavy in 2009 he was hoping he was getting a legitimate number one starter. Peavy hasn’t really lived up to his expectations because of injuries and the struggles of being in a new league. The Jake Peavy that pitched on Sunday is the pitcher Kenny Williams has been waiting for. Thanks to solid starting pitching, four homeruns, and solid defense the Sox (55-58) were able to complete their first sweep in the Twin Cities since 2004.

Brent Lillibridge started off the scoring for the Sox with his second homer in as many nights in the second inning. The Sox would score three more times in the fourth inning with the big blow a solo shot by Paul Konerko. Chicago would add three more runs, a two-run homer by Alexei Ramirez and a solo shot by Alex Rios, which proved to be more than enough for Jake Peavy.

The Jake Peavy that pitched on Sunday looked a lot like the former NL Cy Young award winner. Peavy went eight innings and allowed no runs on just three hits. The Sox righty also had six strikeouts and no walks. Peavy improved his record to 5-5 on the season.

Brian Duensing didn’t have his normal quality stuff he has when he faces the Sox. Duensing went six and a third and allowed five runs, four earned, on nine hits. The Twins (51-63) lefty is now 8-10 on the season.

The Sox will now head to Baltimore to open a four-game series with the Orioles. First game of the series is Monday evening.
