Whitesox White Sox sweep Cubs behind homers, Peavy

Quote:
As Jake Peavy and Adam Dunn were driving together to Wrigley Field on Sunday morning, Dunn made a point of highlighting the conditions of Lake Michigan.

It was as smooth as glass and completely calm, which, according to a baseball proverb put forth by legendary pitcher Greg Maddux, meant it was not going to be a good day for Peavy to pitch.

"I went, 'Oh, lord,'" said Peavy with a laugh, after tossing 6 1/3 scoreless innings during the White Sox 6-0 victory before 38,374. "Obviously, the wind was howling, so it played true today. The Lake was calm and the wind was blowing out.

"All the boys came in from batting practice saying, 'Keep it down, Peav.' But at the same time, you can't go out and be any different. You have to attack the zone and you can't be scared."

Attack Peavy (5-1) did, just as the White Sox did all weekend against the overmatched Cubs (15-26).

With extra security measures strictly enforced because of the NATO Summit taking place this weekend in Chicago, there weren't too many brooms visible at Wrigley Field by the time White Sox fans were chanting "Sweep! Sweep!" as reliever Addison Reed recorded the final out. Those brooms weren't necessary to punctuate the White Sox first three-game sweep at Wrigley since June 11-13, 1999, which gave the White Sox an 18-6 edge in the last 24 games played between the two clubs.
