Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Jake Peavy lost out on his bid to record his
seventh career shutout, but not the win after the Chicago White Sox scored in
the bottom of the ninth inning to come through with a 2-1 verdict over the
Miami Marlins in an interleague matchup from U.S. Cellular Field.
Peavy (6-2) was two outs away from finishing off a 1-0 victory when Derek
Dietrich belted a solo homer in the top of the ninth. He was picked up in the
White Sox' half of the frame, though, when Dewayne Wise doubled off Ryan Webb
(1-3) and Conor Gillaspie followed with a single to bring home the deciding
Gillaspie's hit capped a 3-for-4 night, while Peavy yielded just six hits and
two walks while striking out five in going the distance.
Alexi Ramirez added two hits, including an RBI double, to help Chicago to its
eighth triumph in 11 outings. Alex Rios finished 0-for-4, however, to end his
career-best hitting streak at 18 games.
Dietrich's shot took Ricky Nolasco off the hook for a hard-luck loss. The
Miami starter held the White Sox to only one run while scattering eight hits
and fanning six over 7 2/3 sharp innings.
The Marlins have now dropped four straight and 11 of their last 13 games.
