IGD: Padres vs Diamondbacks (19 Apr 07)

first pitch: 12:35 p.m. PT
television: none
matchup: Jake Peavy (2-0, 0.90 ERA) vs Livan Hernandez (1-0, 1.80 ERA)
previews: Padres.com | SI.com

It’s probably too early to call this a trend, but there’s reason to be encouraged by Jake Peavy‘s performance so far in ’07. Forget the ERA, and look at pitch efficiency:

Date IP TBF #PIT P/PA P/IP
Apr 3 6 23 98 4.26 16.3
Apr 8 7 28 103 3.68 14.7
Apr 14 7 26 100 3.85 14.3

Again, who knows whether Peavy will be able to sustain lower pitch counts over the course of a full season. Wouldn’t it be nice if he could?
