Flushing, NY (Sports Network) - Jake Peavy was outstanding in his first start
in nearly two weeks and the White Sox' bats awoke in a 6-3 victory over the
New York Mets, helping them earn a split of a two-game set at Citi Field.
Chicago posted 13 hits and scored one fewer run than its total over the
previous four games. Alejandro De Aza and Alex Rios each belted a solo homer
among their three hits and combined to score five runs for the White Sox, who
had lost three of four coming in.
Peavy (4-1) didn't appear to have any issue with the back spasms that forced
him to miss his previous two scheduled starts. The right-hander fired 6 2/3
innings of one-run ball, allowing just three hits and striking out six.
Conor Gillaspie went 2-for-4 and drove in a pair in the victory.
Jeremy Hefner (0-4) was roughed up early for New York, with all four of his
runs allowed coming in the first three innings. He gave up eight hits and
struck out five over six frames.
The Mets managed just three hits in the first seven innings before plating a
pair of runs over the final two frames. Lucas Duda hit a solo homer and Ruben
Tejada recorded an RBI in defeat.
