Peavy throws 7 innings - 6 are perfect

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Jake Peavy pitched six perfect innings -- and one far from perfect -- in a 100-pitch outing for the Class AAA Charlotte Knights on Thursday night.
The former Cy Young Award winner hopes the rehab start against the host Toledo Mud Hens was his last in the minors. He'll rejoin the White Sox in Seattle on Friday and could start Wednesday in Anaheim if his shoulder and surgically repaired lat area continue to feel OK.
Peavy threw 100 pitches over seven innings, including 71 for strikes. In a rocky third inning, he allowed five runs on four hits, including a home run to Ryan Strieby. He also allowed a triple and double in the third, but he breezed through his other six innings, each one three-up, three-down, and finished with five strikeouts and one walk.
"My hopes are up now because everything seems to be going in a better direction,'' Sox pitching coach Don Cooper said Thuesday.
"He's got a chance to be with us five, six days from now. Right now it looks like it could happen.''
