TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Jake Peavy pitched two scoreless innings for the Chicago White Sox on Friday against the Angels in his first outing since ripping his right shoulder last July.
The 2007 NL Cy Young winner struck out two and walked one in the Angels’ 3-1 win. Peavy reached 92 mph with a fastball that Los Angeles star Torii Hunter grounded into a double play.
Right-hander Scott Kazmir worked three scoreless innings, and Howie Kendrick had a pair of RBI singles for the Angels. Kazmir allowed two hits with a walk in his first spring start.
Dozens of White Sox fans seated near the third-base dugout gave Peavy a standing ovation when he finished. He had not pitched in a game since he sustained a detached muscle in his shoulder during a game against the Angels.
