Peavy strikes out 9 in a row

and Padres still lose to D-Backs 3-2! Pitcher Jake Peavy was one consecutive strike-out short of Tom Seaver's record of 10, set back in 1970 (year I was born!). In total, Peavy struck out 16 batters in 7 innings. Wow! But ace closer and major league saves record-holder Trevor Hoffman gave up a 2-run homer while trying to hold on to a 2-1 lead. I'm bummed they lost, but what a great performance by Peavy! This is why spring and summer is so great. This is why I love baseball.
