White Sox Vs. Rockies: Colorado Faces Old Foe Jake Peavy

Will the Chicago White Sox and the Colorado Rockies come to another 3-2 decision when they take the field on Thursday afternoon? The previous two games were split with a 13-inning victory for the Rockies on Tuesday and top-of-the-ninth victory the White Sox on Wednesday.

The Rockies haven't seen Jake Peavy since 2008, back when he was with the San Diego Padres. Peavy has a career 3.81 ERA in 17 starts against the Rockies. Injuries have curtailed Peavy's last two seasons and he didn't make his first start this season until May 11. His best start came in his second outing on May 18, throwing a complete game shutout with eight strikeouts. He recently started and won on June 22, but came back just three days later to throw 55 pitches in four innings of relief. He struck out seven.

Aaron Cook will look to end June with a victory. Through his first four starts, Cook is now on a three-game losing streak. He was hit especially hard in his last start, allowing six runs on 12 hits in 5.2 innings.
