Jake Peavy was on a roll, jumping barrels and dodging fireballs.

Short Take: Jake Peavy turns in his most dominant performance with the Sox, blanking the Tribe 1-0.

Ladies and gentleman, Jake Peavy is in the building! The White Sox right-hander turned in a dominating performance in his 2011 U.S. Cellular Field debut Wednesday night, firing a complete-game, three-hit shutout in a 1-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians.

Cleveland (26-14) entered this game as the highest-scoring team in the American League. The Indians had scored 31 runs over their previous three contests, but you never would have known it on this night. Peavy (1-0) completely neutered them.

The Sox right-hander retired the side in order in six out of nine innings. He allowed only three singles. He struck out eight and walked nobody. The Indians never had a runner reach third base. Only one runner reached second base, and that was Shin-Soo Choo, who singled and stole second base in the seventh inning. He was left stranded as Peavy induced Carlos Santana to foul out and Travis Buck to ground out.

It's a damn good thing Peavy was so sharp, because the Sox offense sputtered against Justin Masterson (5-2). The Cleveland right-hander entered Wednesday's game with a 2.25 ERA in 11 career games against the Sox, and he was pretty good again in this outing. Fortunately, Masterson blinked in the first inning. Juan Pierre led off the game with a double. He advanced to third on a single by Omar Vizquel and scored on a sacrifice fly by Adam Dunn.

Peavy made that one run stand up, with a little help from Brent Lillibridge, who made a spectacular diving catch in center field to rob Cleveland second baseman Orlando Cabrera of extra bases in the eighth. After that, Peavy finished with a flourish. He struck out Michael Brantley and Asdrubal Cabrera to close it out in the ninth. No bullpen required in this game.

The Sox (19-25) will try to sweep this brief two-game set Thursday night behind right-hander Gavin Floyd (4-3, 4.22 ERA). Cleveland will pitch right-hander Fausto Carmona (3-3, 3.94), whose ERA has come down a touch since the Sox tagged him for 10 runs on Opening Day. Game time is 7:10 and you can watch on WCIU.
