The Chicago White Sox will send Jake Peavy to the mound on Wednesday looking for their second straight win over the St. Louis Cardinals. The Sox earned a 6-1 victory in the series opener a day ago behind a four-run eighth inning highlighted by homers from Adam Dunn and A.J. Pierzynski. Lance Lynn, St. Louis' unlikely ace this season, makes the start for the Cards.
Peavy enters at 6-1 with a 3.05 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. Peavy has been surprisingly durable for the South Siders this season, throwing 100 pitches or more in his 10 starts.
Lynn has been even better in St. Louis. The 25-year old right-hander is 9-2 with a 2.66 ERA and 1.14 WHIP.
Game Date & Time: Wednesday, June 13, 7:15 p.m. CT
Location: Busch Stadium
