Jake Peavy pitched seven innings of one-run ball, but took a no-decision as the Giants needed 12 innings to beat the Dodgers on Monday.

Peavy outdueled Zack Greinke but didn't have anything to show for it. He scattered three hits and a walk while striking out four. September has been a good month for the right-hander, as he has a 1.99 ERA over five starts in the month. Overall, he is carrying a 3.66 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 76/24 K/BB ratio over 105 2/3 innings. Peavy will make his final regular season start at home against the Rockies.

Jake Peavy scattered four hits over six shutout innings in a no-decision against the Padres on Wednesday.

The right-hander struck out four and walked one. San Diego's former ace is pitching well down the stretch, coming into this one 4-0 with a 3.52 ERA in his last five. The 34-year-old is 7-6 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.17 WHIP.

Jake Peavy surrendered two runs on seven hits across six innings in a 5-3 win against the Reds on Wednesday.

He struck out eight and walked one. Oh, and he smacked a homer. The 34-year-old is finishing the season strong after a shaky start. He'd gone 3-0 with a 3.65 ERA over his last four starts. Peavy is 7-6 with a 4.08 ERA.

Jake Peavy limited the Padres to one run and two hits over seven innings in Friday's victory.

Peavy completed seven innings for the first time since July 8 and the second time all year, as the Giants have been using a quick hook to try to get the most out of him. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like there's any chance those tactics will pay off for them in September. Peavy is 6-6 with a 4.15 ERA.

Jake Peavy tossed an adequate game in Saturday's win over the Rockies, allowing three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Peavy might have allowed three runs over his time on the mound, but he got one of those back at the plate when he hit an RBI double in the sixth inning. When he's not pretending to be Babe Ruth, he's pitched to a 4.41 ERA and 1.26 WHIP. He'll head home to face the Padres in his next scheduled start.

Jake Peavy went 5 2/3 innings, yielding four runs in a no-decision as the Giants lost in 14 innings to the Dodgers on Monday.

Peavy had limited the Dodgers to only one run through five innings, but served up a game-tying two-run home run to Adrian Gonzalez, then a go-ahead solo home run to Andre Ethier in the sixth. He was pulled with two outs in the frame. In total, he gave up six hits, walked none, and struck out four. Peavy has been solid in 11 starts since returning from the disabled list, posting a 3.80 ERA. He'll face the Rockies at Coors Field in his next outing.

Jake Peavy tossed a nice game in Wednesday's win over the Cubs, surrendering two runs on five hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Peavy did walk three, but he was able to limit the damage the occasionally spotty control might have otherwise brought to his pitching line. Kris Bryant hit a shallow two-run single in the first inning to account for both runs against the 34-year-old right-hander. The owner of a 4.21 ERA and 1.29 WHIP, Peavy will dance with the Dodgers in a road start next time his number is called.

Jake Peavy gave up four runs over six innings Thursday in a loss to the Pirates.

Neil Walker's two-run homer in the sixth inning pretty much ended the game tonight. Two shaky starts in a row have taken Peavy's ERA from 3.75 to 4.35. His rotation spot shouldn't be in any jeopardy, but he's not looking like a mixed-league starter at the moment.

Jake Peavy allowed two runs on four hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Cubs.

In a low-scoring contest, Peavy had the misfortune to face off with Cubs starter Jake Arrieta. Arrieta did not allow a run. Peavy allowed two--on a Kris Bryant RBI single and a Addison Russell sacrifice fly in the first and second innings, respectively--and that was enough for the loss. He struck out six and walked two on the afternoon. The veteran right-hander holds a 3.75 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. He'll host the Nationals next time he toes the rubber.

Jake Peavy struck out eight while allowing one run over six innings in a no-decision against the Braves on Tuesday.

Peavy was obviously in the zone -- his eight strikeouts were the most in a game since September 11 of last season. He gave up just five hits and a walk before exiting. Peavy didn't factor in the decision despite his strong start, leaving his record at 2-4 on the year. The right-hander will carry a 3.77 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into Sunday's matchup with the Cubs.
Tue, Aug 4, 2015 11:05:00 PM

Jake Peavy scattered just four hits over six shutout innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Peavy struck out three in the contest. Unfortunately for him, the Giants offense didn't wake up until the seventh inning, so Peavy had to settle for a no-decision. He now sports a 4.12 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 25/10 K/BB ratio over 39 1/3 innings on the season. He'll do battle against the Braves in Atlanta his next time out on Tuesday.
Wed, Jul 29, 2015 10:01:00 PM

Jake Peavy surrendered three runs in six innings Friday in a win over the A's.

Peavy hasn't dominated in any of his four starts since coming off the DL, but he has a reasonable enough 3.51 ERA in that span. He allowed five hits, walked none and struck out two tonight.
Sat, Jul 25, 2015 01:48:00 AM

Jake Peavy picked up his first win of the season Saturday in the Giants' defeat of the Diamondbacks.

Peavy allowed four earned runs on eight hits, but the San Francisco offense backed him with eight runs. The veteran right-hander now stands 1-4 with a 4.94 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. He's not a great fantasy option in his age-34 season.
Sun, Jul 19, 2015 12:00:00 AM

Jake Peavy took a loss Wednesday despite limiting the Mets to two runs -- one earned -- over seven innings.

Peavy fanned five, issued just one walk, and scattered six hits, but he was thoroughly out-dueled by Mets ace Jacob deGrom. Peavy has rattled off two very good outings since returning from the disabled list and could be worth a look again in certain matchups. He gets the Diamondbacks in Arizona next week.
