Helping in the fight against pancreatic cancer
Jake Peavy, of the Chicago White Sox, took a loss on the mound today against the New York Yankees, but today is a win for everybody in Major League Baseball and others around the world. Tweets from Jake Peavy and Daryl Van Schouwen, White Sox beat writer for the Chicago Sun-Times, confirm that Peavy is donating $100 for each strikeout today in MLB. The donated money will go towards research in the fight against pancreatic cancer in honor of San Diego Padres former coach Darrel Akerfelds. The Padres’ bullpen coach passed away from pancreatic cancer on June 24, 2012. Akerfelds was the Padres bullpen coach since 2001. Peavy pitched for the Padres from 2002 to 2009.
Peavy took the mound today for the Chicago White Sox in New York. The Yankees shut out the White Sox 4-0, but Peavy did his part in his fight against cancer, as he struck out 11 Yankees batters in eight innings. The Yankees’ pitching staff contributed 13 strikeouts of their own.
There is a full slate of MLB baseball going today, as each team is playing. The Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins have a doubleheader scheduled, so we get an extra game to add to the total. Let’s hope for heavy strikeouts. Good work, Mr. Peavy.
Here is Peavy’s tweet from last night and Van Schouwen’s tweet from today:
Another great win!! Hope there’s a lot of K’s in MLB 2moro bc we are donating $100 for each 1 continue fight against pancreatic cancer! #AK

NEW YORK STATE OF MIND
After Chicago's 4-0 loss to New York on Saturday, Jake Peavy had some not-so-nice things to say about the Yankees and their stadium.
In a story that will remind you that some athletes still have some genuine kindness in them, Jake Peavy is donating $100 to cancer research for every strikeout in the MLB today. Yes, that means league-wide, not just in his game.
This is all according to Darryl Van Schouwen, one of the White Sox beat writers for the Chicago Sun Times.
To add to this, Peavy went out to the mound...
White Sox starter Jake Peavy was pissed off a little bit after his start against the Yankees, which ended up resulting in a 4-0 loss due to home runs. With that, Jake Peavy proceeded to rip Yankee Stadium, saying stuff like:
“They hit the ball in the air and it’s a home run.”
“You have to keep the ball out of the air in this ballpark.”
“The ball gets in the air, you...
The Chicago White Sox totally had a ball - without one.
In a throwback to comic routines from the game's distant past, the White Sox played ''shadow ball'' Thursday night, pantomiming catches and throws during a mock infield drill.
Coach Joe McEwing said the team ran out of time for a full practice before playing at Yankee Stadium. Instead, they went through...
The Chicago White Sox have watched the decision to turn LHP Chris Sale from a reliever to a starter go from an experiment to an All-Star selection, as the 23-year-old was named to his first All-Star team before the Sox lost to the New York Yankees 4-2 on Sunday. Sale won't be alone, with the first-place South Siders also sending sluggers Paul Konerko and Adam Dunn in representing...
Chicago White Sox righty Jesse Crain looks closer to going back on the 15-day disabled list than returning to the
bullpen, with his condition not changing prior to Friday's win over the Yankees. Crain felt a little
shoulder soreness after his most recent outing, last Saturday against the Brewers, and then "felt
something" on Monday. He threw off the mound on Tuesday...
The Chicago Whites Sox started winning this season early. Many thought this was a fluke and the Sox would start losing. Well, they haven’t. The White Sox took it to the New York Yankees last night handing the men in pin stripes a loss 14-7. When the Yankees get hammered like this, you have to take a look at the team that handed them the beating. The White Sox are for real folks...
The Chicago White Sox started a three game series with the Yankees last night and came up with a huge win. Jose Quintana pitched 6.0 innings, gave up 8 hits, 6 ER, 5 Ks, and got the win. As far as starts at Yankee Stadium go, this one could have been a lot worse. If you had the cajones to start him at least you got a win and 5 Ks. I still like Quintana a lot, but I’d steer clear...
A.J. Pierzynski homered twice, Paul Konerko and Alexei Ramirez also connected and the Chicago White Sox pounded the Yankees so hard that New York brought in outfielder Dewayne Wise to pitch in a 14-7 romp Friday night.
A night after the White Sox rallied to win at Yankee Stadium on Dayan Viciedo's three-run homer in the ninth, they made it a short and sour major league debut...
While watching the Bombers defeat the Chicago White Sox 4-2 earlier this afternoon on Old-Timers’ Day at the new Yankee Stadium, two-time American League Manager of the Year Joe Torre said he thinks notorious flamethrower Roger Clemens deserves enshrinement into … Continue reading →
NEW YORK -- The Chicago White Sox battered around a New York Yankees rookie starter making his major league debut, and didn't do too badly against his successors either. Until Chicago's final two outs, when the Yankees had another player make his major-league pitching debut, as outfielder Dewayne Wise recorded the last two outs after Chicago finished off a 14-7 win with...
