&#8226 Chicago White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy tossed a three-hit shutout at Oakland Monday, walking two, striking out five and lowering his ERA to 1.88 by inducing 16 outs on his offspeed pitches. Peavy's shoulder issues certainly seem a thing of the past; he's walked four hitters this season with 26 strikeouts. Peavy is scheduled to face the Boston Red Sox this weekend.
