Interleague Preview from The Sports Network



Wednesday, August 13 (All times Eastern)

Chicago White Sox (57-63) at San Francisco Giants (62-57), 3:45 p.m.

Probable Starting Pitchers: Chicago White Sox - Jose Quintana (6-8, 3.04) San Francisco - Jake Peavy (0-3, 4.82)

(SportsNetwork.com) - Having gone over three months without a victory, Jake Peavy gets the call for the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday for the finale of a quick two-game set against his former Chicago White Sox team.

Peavy has lost all three of his starts with the Giants since being acquired from the Boston Red Sox and has not won any of his past 12 decisions since his last and only victory this season on April 25.

The right-hander has allowed 10 earned runs over 18 2/3 innings with the Giants for a 4.82 earned run average and is coming off a 3-1 setback to Milwaukee on Thursday. He yielded three runs on nine hits and three walks over 5 2/3 innings versus the Brewers.

All three of Peavy's losses with San Francisco have been decided by two runs or fewer as well as eight of past 10 starts dating back to his time with Boston.

"I can't give any more than I'm giving," said Peavy, who is winless in his last 18 starts. "You just over analyze everything when you're in those tight ballgames and obviously that's what I've pitched in so far."

The 33-year-old is 1-0 with a 2.08 ERA in two previous encounters with the White Sox, who acquired him from the San Diego Padres during the 2009 campaign. He stayed with Chicago until getting dealt to Boston during the 2013 season, going 36-29 with a 4.00 ERA with the White Sox over 84 games (83 starts).

Chicago counters with its own tough-luck hurler in Jose Quintana, who is 6-8 on the year despite a solid 3.04 ERA.

Quintana is coming off his first setback in 10 starts, a 4-1 loss at Seattle on Friday, but the White Sox weren't really racking up wins over his unbeaten streak. His loss to the Mariners snapped a modest three-decision winning streak and Chicago had gone just 4-5 over his unbeaten streak.

The 25-year-old southpaw yielded four runs -- two earned -- on seven hits and two walks over 5 2/3 innings versus Seattle. Included in that line was the first homer Quintana had allowed in eight starts, a three-run shot to the Mariners' Mike Zunino in the fifth inning that followed a leadoff walk and Logan Morrison reaching on an error.

"(Quintana) was pitching great and then walk, error does him in," said White Sox manager Robin Ventura.

Quintana will be facing the Giants for the first time looking to pitch his club to a sweep after the White Sox took Tuesday night's contest 3-2 in 10 innings.

Gordon Beckham played the hero, making a diving stab in the ninth inning to start a key double play before his RBI single in the 10th put the White Sox in front.

"Gordon had a good game," said Ventura. "The plays he made defensively tonight, besides just the hit, the plays he made defensively saved the game for us."

Despite Beckham's defensive gem, the Giants scored twice in the ninth to tie the game and force extra innings. Joe Panik hit into a double play started by Beckham, scoring Pablo Sandoval, and Brandon Crawford followed with an RBI single.

"Great job these guys did coming back," said Giants manager Bruce Bochy. "Down two in the ninth and we had some great at-bats. I think we all thought Panik's ball was getting through. They not only got the out, but they turned one of the best double-plays I've seen."

Despite the rally, the Giants lost their fifth in a row and now sit six games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for first place in the National League West.

The White Sox, meanwhile, won for just the third time in their last 10, but have won six in a row overall versus the Giants.
