Peavy works on side as Sox lose to Tribe

GLENDALE, Ariz. – While the White Sox avoid using their starting pitchers against AL Central opponents, the Indians figure they’ve seen their rivals so often a few spring training games won’t hurt.

So at the same time Jake Peavy was throwing 81 pitches on a back field against minor leaguers, Ubaldo Jimenez worked five solid innings against the Sox in a 5-2 victory Wednesday.

After stringing together four hits in the second, including an RBI ground-rule double to center by Gordon Beckham and a run-scoring single by Dewayne Wise, the Sox were held to two hits in the final six innings against Jimenez and four Indians relievers.

Alexei Ramirez (.409) singled twice and stole a base, and Wise had two singles.

Notes: Sox 3B Jeff Keppinger’s sore shoulder, which has lingered since the beginning of camp, kept him out of the lineup again, but manager Robin Ventura downplayed it, saying the team is being overly cautious. Keppinger might play second when he returns, perhaps this weekend, to avoid longer throws.
