Satuday’s matchup will be interesting as it features the veteran Eric Stults (8-17, 4.42 ERA) against former long-time Padre ace Jake Peavy (7-13, 3.78). Stults pitched well in the shutout win against the Rockies earlier this week. His last start against the Giants was on the 4th of July. He got the win pitching 7 innings, not allowing a run and only surrendering 4 hits. Jake Peavy has played for the Red Sox and Giants this year. The Giants acquired him during the summer to help with the playoff push. Peavy last pitched for the Padres in 2009, then was traded to the White Sox. He was a two-time All-Star with San Diego and he won the 2007 Cy Young and Pitcher’s Triple Crown for the National League. He is considered one of the best pitchers in San Diego history.
