Jake Peavy allowed three runs(one earned) on six hits while walking one and striking out five over seven innings as the Giants fell to the Rockies 3-2.
Peavy fell to 2-4 since being dealt to the Giants despite allowing three runs or less in five of his first six starts with his new team. He is now sitting on a 4.31 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 26 starts between the Red Sox and the Giants while owning a 128:55 K:BB rate over 163.2 innings. After allowing 20 home runs as a member of the Red Sox, Peavy has given up just two home runs since July 27, so he has clearly taken the steps in the right direction, which makes him a solid pick up for the stretch run, even if his record doesn't indicate it. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Brewers on Saturday. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
