It was hard to see this one coming after Jake Peavy gave up four runs over six innings against the Angels in his season debut last week.
On Wednesday night, the 29-year-old pitched his fifth career shutout, turning in a three-hitter in a 1-0 win over the team with baseball’s best record, the Indians.
Cleveland starter Justin Masterson was nearly as good, going the distance in a five-hitter.
Peavy struck out eight and walked none in a brilliant 111-pitch outing. Only one Indian reached second base. It was his second shutout in 22 starts for the White Sox. His other three all came with the Padres in 2005.
Peavy was making his second start since having shoulder surgery 10 months ago.
