(4/16/2015) Padres pitcher Shawn Kelley has endured a rough first few games with his new team, giving up six runs (five earned) on five hits and four walks in three innings while striking out two.

"Anybody who knows anything about baseball would know it's not the start that I wanted with a new club," Kelley told U-T San Diego, "but you're going to have a couple outings a couple different times throughout the year that aren't going to be favorable. Mine just happened to be right out of the gate."

Kelley has spoken with pitching coach Darren Balsley about "staying on plane and working downhill."

"I think I've been trying to reach back, because I have given up a few hits, and find a little more," Kelley said. "I've kind of been overthrowing a little bit. I know what i have to do to get guys out. I've done it for a while, so it's really just continuing to stick with it."

Kelley and the Padres start a three-game road series against the Cubs Friday.
