PADRES 4, WHITE SOX 0

For the record: The Sox dropped to 4-3-2 with their quietest offensive showing of the spring. The Sox had four hits, singles by Tyler Flowers, Hector Gimenez (6-for-10 this spring), Stefan Gartrell and Conor Gillaspie (who raised his average to .357 with an infield hit).

Peavy's first start: Right-hander Jake Peavy threw 44 pitches over three innings, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk to the first-ball hitting Padres, his former team. Peavy struck out two and retired the last five batters he faced. "I threw mainly fastballs. Just trying to get the command,'' Peavy said. "You can only go so hard in your bullpen sessions and live BP. It's nice to get a hitter in there. They are a very aggressive team. But I used my fastball and got better as I went.''

Penned in: Addison Reed and Matt Lindstrom each pitched a scoreless inning of relief, and prospect Nestor Molina - acquired in the trade for Sergio Santos - pitched two scoreless innings, his second scoreless outing. Lindstrom, a free-agent signee in the offseason, hasn't allowed a run in three appearances.

He's back: Alexei Ramirez returned after missing four days tending to a family matter in Miami. Ramirez played shortstop and went 0-for-3.

Rough one: Brent Morel was 0-for-3 with two strikeouts and got doubled off second on Paul Konerko's liner to third baseman Chase Headley.

On deck: Vs. Giants, 2:05. John Danks, who is recovering from left shoulder surgery, will pitch in a game for the first time since he faced the Cubs in May. Ryan Vogelsong will pitch for the Giants. Simon Castro, Donnie Veal, Brian Omogrosso, Jhan Marinez and Ramon Troncoso are also on the Sox pitching schedule.
