 SAN DIEGO (AP) -Padres manager Bud Black defended Jake Peavy on Sunday, saying a dark substance on his right hand after a game against the Dodgers on Saturday was just a mix of dirt and rosin.
The sports Web site, www.thebiglead.com, posted images Sunday it said were sent by a reader after Peavy tossed a two-hitter in a 4-1 win over Los Angeles. The images, purportedly still frame shots from a TV broadcast of the game, show a dark substance on Peavy's right thumb, index and middle fingers.
``When you play baseball, your hands get dirty,'' Black said Sunday. ``He had dirty hands. Trying to keep his palms and fingers dry, you apply rosin and dirt. Rosin is a sticky substance, and as often as he goes to the rosin bag, as often as he goes to the dirt to sop up moisture, your hands get dirty.
``I don't think there is anything to it. Modern cameras can pick up a dirty hand.''
Peavy (2-0) has allowed just one run in 16 innings over two starts this year. The right-hander won the NL Cy Young Award last season.
``There's nothing on my hands that's not supposed to be,'' Peavy told the San Diego Union-Tribune for a blog entry on its Web site. ``I thought it was funny that it was such a big deal. I've got no problems with anytime anybody needs to check me.''
