Short Take:Flowers 8th inning RBI double makes a winner of Jake Peavy as Sox beat Twins 4-2

Jake Peavy continued his strong start to the 2013 season by holding Minnesota to 2 runs on 5 hits over 7 innings and the offense gave him enough run support to earn his 5th win of the season, bookended by back-to-back homers from Adam Dunn and Dayan Viciedo in the 2nd and a clutch 8th inning double by Tyler Flowers in the 8th to break a 2-2 tie and put the Sox up for good en route to a 4-2 win.

Peavy twirled a gem tonight, retiring the first 12 Twins he faced and throwing 70 of his 104 pitches for strikes, punching out 6 while walking none as he continues to show the Sox the healthy, golden arm the acquired at the trade deadline four seasons ago. At 5-1 with a 2.96 ERA he passes the eye test as a bona fide ace pitcher, but his performance is even more impressive when you look deeper at his numbers and see that he is currently outpitching the pace he set in 2007 when he won the National League Cy Young Award with San Diego in several key areas including WHIP, K/9 IP, and K/BB rate. And he ranks 9th amongst AL pitchers with a 1.6 WAR.

As for Tuesday’s game, the Sox staked him to an early lead in the 2nd when Adam Dunn and Dayan Viciedo, playing at 1st and DH respectively for the second straight night, launched back-to-back homers off Twins starter Kevin Correia to give the Sox an early 2-0 lead. It looked like that would be enough for Peavy early, but in the 5th, with Justin Morneau at 2nd, Oswaldo Arcia singled to right field. Morneau tested the arm of Alex Rios, whose throw beat him to the plate with plenty of time, but in the sliding dance around home plate, umpire Jordan Baker ruled that Morneau had slid around and under Flowers to score the run, but replays show pretty clearly that he was tagged not once, but probably twice. The human element.

The Sox surrendered another run in the 7th to knot the score at 2 but regained the lead for good in the 8th as Dewayne Wise doubled to lead off the inning and came around to score one batter later as Flowers made amends for his “gaffe,” rifling a double into the left field corner. He would score the Sox’s fourth and final run later in the inning on an RBI single by Alexei Ramirez. Jesse Crain pitched a perfect 8th and Addison Reed handled the ninth for his 12th save in the Sox’s 16th win of the season.

Dylan Axelrod will take the mound in the rubber game of the series Wednesday afternoon against Mike Pelfrey. The former top prospect of the Mets, Pelfrey is struggling to adjust to life in the American League, although his record is a respectable 3-3, he’s sporting an ERA north of 6. Game time is noon in Chicago and the game will be televised on WGN.

We'll give two thumbs for the win and another finger to home plate ump Jordan Baker for missing that call at the plate
