Greg Peavey named Eastern League Pitcher of the Week

The Binghamton Mets’ Greg Peavey was named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week.

Peavey pitched a complete-game shutout, allowing just two hits — both singles — and striking out six. Peavey retired the first 11 batters he faced. He did not allow a walk and never allowed a runner past first base. He retired the final 13 batters and needed exactly 100 pitches to complete the twelfth nine-inning two-hitter in B-Mets franchise history.

Peavey was selected by the Mets in the sixth round of the 2010 draft out of Oregon State University. He made his Double-A debut with the B-Mets in 2012 and earned his first Pitcher of the Week award in April 2012. He has gone 2-1 with a 3.16 ERA through five starts this season.
