Jake Peavy threw a complete game Saturday as the White Sox won 2-1 over the Marlins.
Peavy did not allow a run until Derek Dietrich took him deep in the top of the ninth inning. The veteran right-hander struck out five batters and allowed only six hits in his nine total frames. He is now 6-2 with a 2.97 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 63/15 K/BB ratio in 60 2/3 innings this season. The Cubs are on tap for him next.
Conor Gillaspie hit a walkoff RBI single Saturday to lift the White Sox past the Marlins.
Gillaspie singled up the middle in the second inning, singled to right field in the fourth and then roped a walkoff RBI single to left field in the bottom of the ninth inning to score Dewayne Wise from second base. Gillaspie has a solid .298/.362/.444 batting line with three homers and nine RBI in 42 games this season.
Tyler Flowers was scratched from the White Sox lineup on Saturday due to back spasms.
The injury is likely just day-to-day, as Flowers has started the previous four games for the White Sox. Flowers is hitting .202/.269/.345 with four homers and 12 RBI.
Chris Sale (shoulder) played catch on Saturday and has deemed himself ready to make his Tuesday start.
"Everything is on track and I'll be ready to go on Tuesday," Sale said, according to MLB.com's Scott Merkin. He was scratched from his turn this past Wednesday due to mild tendinitis in his left posterior shoulder but is feeling better after a few days of rest. It's great news for Sale owners, as the left-hander has a 5-2 record and 2.53 ERA through nine starts this season.
Rule 5 pick Angel Sanchez cleared waivers and was declined when offered back to the Angels.
Sanchez will likely remain in the White Sox organization and be sent outright to Triple-A Charlotte. The 29-year-old utility infielder is currently on disabled list with a lower back strain.
Jeff Keppinger delivered a walk-off RBI single in a 4-3 win over the Marlins in 11 innings on Friday.
Keppinger sneaked it through the left side of the infield with the bases loaded to win it. The veteran infielder went 2-for-5 with two RBI on the night and is hitting .343 (11-for-32) over his last nine games. The recent hot streak has only pulled his batting average up to .210 for the year, but we expect it to continue to rise in the days ahead.
