Peavy Leaves Start With Back Strain
CHICAGO (AP) -- White Sox right-hander Jake Peavy left Tuesday night's start against the Los Angeles Angels in the second inning with a strained right back muscle.

The White Sox were leading 1-0 with two outs in the inning when Peavy delivered a 2-2 pitch to the Angels' Mike Napoli. Peavy jumped off the mound and raised his right arm, then walked straight to the dugout with team trainer Herm Schneider.

The White Sox considered skipping Peavy's turn June 17 at Pittsburgh because of a sore right shoulder, but he insisted on pitching two days later against the Washington Nationals. Peavy responded by tossing a three-hitter for his fourth career shutout.

Peavy began the day 7-6 with a 4.70 ERA. He was 3-1 with a 1.55 ERA his past four starts.
