      Giants pitcher Jake Peavy records win Saturday

      Giants pitcher Jake Peavy won his eighth game of the season Saturday, allowing just one run on four hits and a walk over five innings while striking out two. The lone run scored on a Ben Paulsen solo shot, but otherwise Peavy was solid in his final start of 2015. When he was healthy he pitched reasonably well, so expect him to be back in the Giants rotation next season.

      Giants SP Jake Peavy tosses six shutout innings Wednesday

      Giants pitcher Jake Peavy pitched six shutout innings Wednesday, giving up just four hits and a walk while striking out four in a 5-4 loss to the Padres. Peavy was great against his former team, departing after throwing 88 pitches with a 2-0 lead. Peavy has been excellent over his last three outings, allowing just three earned runs over 19 innings. Injuries have shortened Peavy's 2015 campaign - with the Giants out of contention, the 34-year-old will look to regroup next season in his final contract year with San Francisco.

      Giants SP Jake Peavy remains on roll in Wednesday win

      It has become hard to imagine now that Giants right-hander Jake Peavy not long ago was battling Ryan Vogelsong for a spot in the rotation. Peavy (7-6) remained hot Wednesday by turning in one of his best performances of 2015. He tossed six innings of two-run ball while striking out eight and walking just one in a defeat of Cincinnati. Peavy has strung together four wins in his last five starts with a strong 3.52 ERA over that span. He hasn't been more than a decent NL-only pitcher this season, but that has been mainly a result of his lack of strikeouts. The eight-whiff effort was perhaps an anomaly, as indicated by his 6.60 K/9 rate. Regardless, his next start comes at pitcher-friendly Petco Park against the Padres next Wednesday, and he will even have mixed league appeal for that start.

      Giants SP Jake Peavy bests former team in solid effort Friday

      Jake Peavy was outstanding in his start on Friday, as the Giants rolled over the Padres 9-1 on Friday. Peavy allowed one run on two hits over seven strong innings. He struck out two and did not walk a batter. Peavy (6-6, 4.15 ERA) was lifted after throwing just 79 pitches. But with the Giants up comfortably, there was no reason to have Peavy go any longer. The only run he allowed came on a solo home run by Justin Upton in the second inning.

      Jake Peavy leads Giants to victory with arm and bat on Saturday

      Giants starter Jake Peavy posted a solid outing against the Rockies on Saturday. The veteran right-hander allowed three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings. He walked one and struck out five, en route to the 7-3 victory. Peavy (5-6, 4.41 ERA) gave up a run in the third inning to cut the Giants' lead to 2-1. The Giants were able to push across three more runs before Peavy allowed a two-run home run to Nolan Arenado in the sixth inning--which was the knockout blow for Peavy. Peavy also helped himself with the bat in this one, as he went 2 for 3 with a pair of doubles, an RBI and a run scored. He is now 5 for 26 at the plate this season, and the doubles were his first since 2013. On the mound, Peavy is 3-1 with a hefty 5.53 ERA over his last five starts.

Peavy, whose ERA rose to 4.38, allowed a run in the first inning, but then settled down, while his mates nabbed him a 3-1 lead. But things fell apart for him in the sixth, when he gave up a two-run home run to Adrian Gonzalez and a solo shot to Andre Ethier, giving the Dodgers a one-run advantage. The Giants would later tie the game up, taking Peavy off the hook. Peavy did not have a great month of August. In six starts, he went 2-2 with a 4.67 ERA, which included three outings of at least four runs allowed.

      Giants SP Jake Peavy performs poorly, but still wins

      Giants veteran starter Jake Peavy won't be bragging about his performance Saturday night, but when you arrive on the mound with only two wins, you'll take a third any way you can get it. Peavy allowed five runs on nine hits in 5 2/3 innings against Washington. He walked three and struck out two in raising his record to 3-5. He pitched well for a while after a Yunel Escobar double and Ian Desmond homer resulted in a 2-0 deficit. But he was stung again in the sixth on a Jose Lobaton double that scored two and a Michael Taylor triple that followed and knocked him out of the game. The effort was his worst since his return to action in early July. Peavy had yielded just 13 runs in 42 2/3 innings during his previous seven starts.

      Giants' Jake Peavy throws quality start, takes no-decision Tuesday

      Giants starter Jake Peavy turned in a strong outing on Tuesday, but was left with a no-decision in the 8-3 win over the Braves on Tuesday. Peavy allowed one run on five hits over six innings. He walked one and struck out a season-high eight batters. Peavy left the game with the Giants leading 2-1. But the bullpen allowed the Braves to take the lead in the seventh. The Giants were able to rally back however, as they put up a four-spot in the top of the eighth, en route to the five-run victory. This was the third straight quality start for Peavy. The veteran right-hander has looked a lot better on the mound since returning from a 2 1/2 month stay on the disabled list with a back injury. He has pitched at least six innings in all six starts since his return, going 2-2 with a 2.63 ERA.
