Trivia: Triple Crown on the Mound

The last time an MLB hitter won the triple crown (lead his league in batting average, homers, and RBI) was when Carl Yastrzemski did it in 1967. However, it's more common for a pitcher to win the triple crown (lead his league in wins, strikeouts, and ERA). In fact, there are two pitchers currently active who have won the triple crown. Can you name them?

Here's a hint. One of these guys won the triple crown in the AL, and the other in the NL. However, neither of these guys is currently pitching in the league where he won his triple crown...

The answer is Johan Santana in 2006 for the AL, and Jake Peavy in 2007 for the NL. (You know I like those Chicago connections.)
