Jake Peavy made his first start of spring training as the White Sox faced the Padres on Sunday. Peavy’s mound opponent was Clayton Richard, part of the trade that brought Peavy from the Padres to the White Sox. The Padres tagged Peavy with three runs in three innings in a 4-0 victory. “I felt good, I really did,” Peavy said. “I threw mainly fastballs, just trying to get the command. You can only go so hard in your bullpen sessions and live (batting practice). “I felt excited about getting strong, getting your fastball command where it needs to be and everything else works off of that. You get your mechanics going game speed, you get your fastball command where it needs to be and everything else works off of that. “It was my first spring start and I’m not result oriented. You like to have results, don’t get me wrong. But it was a good first day.” The Padres scored a run in the first inning on a single by Will Venable and double by Chase Headley, then two more in the second on a single and two ensuing doubles. Peavy ended with a perfect third inning. The Sox had a pair of walks against Richard but the first inning ended when Paul Konerko lined into a double play. Konerko also ended the Sox's fourth inning with a double play grounder.
