Relief appearance in June sticks with Peavy
CHICAGO -- Jake Peavy's love of competition might have admittedly taken a little out of him for the stretch run.

After allowing six runs on six hits in the first inning of Wednesday's 7-6 loss to the Twins, raising his ERA to 5.21 and dropping his record to 6-7, Peavy was asked if he had any regrets concerning coming back too soon in the recovery process from 2010 season-ending surgery to reattach his lat muscle. The White Sox right-hander had just one.

"If I could go back and take one thing away, I probably set myself back with the relief appearance I had, and that was all my decision," said Peavy of his seven-strikeout, 55-pitch effort over four innings on June 25 against the Nationals, when the White Sox were in a six-man rotation, but John Danks left early with an oblique strain.

"But I love to compete. Today, I competed as hard as I've ever competed. I left everything I have on the field."
