Jake Peavy Flirts With No-Hitter, Beats Brewers


Jake PeavyJake Peavy can still pitch and still has the stuff to dominate. Just ask the Milwaukee Brewers. Peavy took a no-nitter into the eight inning last night and the San Francisco Giants beat the Brewers 3-1. Santiago Casilla worked the ninth, giving up an RBI single to Ryan Braun, for his 13th save.

The right-hander got the first out of the eighth on a nice backhand grab by third baseman Pablo Sandoval. Mark Reynolds fought off a 1-2 pitch, breaking his bat in the process, and flared it just over the head of Joe Panik into right field for the first Brewers hit.

”I’d walked a few guys so I was thinking about making pitches, just keep making pitches,” Peavy said. ”Any time you can beat a team in first place you feel good about what you’re doing.”

Peavy was acquired from the Red Sox last month, took a no-hitter into the seventh inning Aug. 2 at the New York Mets.

The win leaves the Giants 2 1/2 games behind the Los Angeles Dodger sin the National League West.
