IGD: Padres vs Diamondbacks (27 Aug 07)

Game #130
time: 7:05 p.m. PT
tv: 4SD
sp: Jake Peavy (14-5, 2.21) vs Livan Hernandez (9-8, 4.96)
pre: Padres.com, B-R.com

Jake Peavy‘s next strikeout will move him past Andy Benes and into first place all time among Padres pitchers. Peavy has recorded at least one strikeout in all but one — June 22, 2003, against Seattle — of his 164 career starts, so that’s almost guaranteed to happen. In fact, if Chris Young leads off (as he has 68 times this year), Peavy could set the mark real early in the game.

Records are nice, but wins are even better. Go Padres!

    Second is, well, pretty self-explanatory…
