Peavy-ized
Jake Peavy

Posted Apr 22, 2004


Jake Peavy stopped the streak cold. In an 11-0 victory over the Giants, Peavy kept San Diego Padres nemesis Barry Bonds off the homer board. A huge victory over the Giants in the land formerly known as Pac Bell and the Friars first shutout of the year. The Padres scored the most runs ever in a win in San Fran and have kept Bonds from records twice this year.

Peavy pitched six strong innings, allowing four hits and striking out four. He also had two hits and an RBI. Jay Witasick and Jason Szuminski completed the Padres' shutout. Peavy’s ERA is now down to 1.54 and Peavy has tossed 14 straight shutout innings against the Giants.

Jake Peavy (1-1) struck out Bonds in the second inning and Bonds walked twice before being replaced in the eighth inning, one homer short of the record for consecutive games with a homer (8).

Brian Giles homered for the second straight game and drove in four runs. Mark Loretta hit a three-run homer, singled and scored two runs, and Terrence Long had three hits with a triple for the Padres, who pounded out a season-high 17 hits a night after getting 15. Every player in the starting lineup except Ramon Vasquez had a hit.

The Padres scored in all but two innings, the sixth and ninth. The scoring began with a ground out by Brian Giles to score the red-hot Sean Burroughs in the first. The team got another run in the second, one in the third, four in the fourth, one in the fifth, one in the seventh and two in the eighth.
