Pittsburgh vs. San Diego, 23 September 2006

Duke, Peavy (MLB.com)

Zach Duke (10-13, 4.49) vs. Jake Peavy (9-14, 4.25). Here are a couple of young pitchers who have battled back recently to post the sorts of numbers their fans expected. After a terrible July, Peavy had an ERA over 5, but he's posted ERAs below 3 in both August and September. His peripherals are only a little worse now than they've ever been, so there's no reason to think he can't continue posting those August/September numbers in the near future. Duke, too, has had his best two months of the season in August and September, mostly because he has limited his walks.
