|Big seventh inning sinks Ian Kennedy |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(4/17/14) Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy was on top of his game for much of his start Thursday, but fell apart late in a 3-1 loss
Kennedy made it through seven innings in the start, and six of them were nearly flawless. He allowed just one hit through his first six innings and appeared well on his way to his second win even with little support. Unfortunately, three hits and a walk in the seventh inning led to three runs and left Kennedy on the wrong side of a 3-1 loss.
Kennedy struck out seven while allowing four hits and two walks in his seven innings, while lowering his ERA to 4.13. He is 1-3 through four starts, with just nine runs of support total heading into his next start, set for Tuesday in Milwaukee.

(4/13/14) Padres starter Ian Kennedy was not at his best on Saturday, suffering his second loss of the season in his team's 6-2 defeat to Detroit.
Kennedy (1-2) gave up a run-scoring double to Ian Kinsler in the opening frame, a run-scoring double to Miguel Cabrera in the third and a two-run single to Torii Hunter in the fourth. He was charged with four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings pitched.
Kennedy owns a 4.24 ERA along with a 16:3 K:BB ratio over 17 innings pitched. He has lost his first two decisions at home, but he'll look to bounce back in his third scheduled start at home on Thursday against the Rockies.
|Pinch hit home run gives Ian Kennedy his first win |

(4/6/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy tossed a solid start against the Marlins Sunday.
Kennedy was locked in a pitcher's duel with Nate Eovaldi, and through six innings, it looked as though Kennedy would be a hard luck loser. But the Padres managed to work two hits off Eovaldi in the seventh, bringing up Kennedy's spot in the batting order. Alexi Amarista was called upon to pinch hit for Kennedy, and cracked a three-run home run.
While Kennedy was fortunate to come up with the win, he did pitch well enough to earn it under normal circumstances. Over six innings, Kennedy allowed three hits and one earned run. He walked one and struck out five batters. His next start is scheduled against the Tigers.

(4/1/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy began his season with a loss Tuesday after giving up three earned runs on five hits and one walk in five innings while striking out four in his team's 3-2 loss to the Dodgers.
Kennedy postd an ugly 6.33 ERA during the spring that was accompanied by a quality 15:5 K:BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. He'll square off against the Marlins Sunday.

(3/26/14) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy surrendered three earned runs on six hits in two innings while striking out one and giving up two home runs in his team's 9-5 win over the Royals Wednesday.
Kennedy hasn't had the best of springs, posting a 6.33 ERA and giving up four home runs while turning in a 15:5 K:BB ratio in 21 1/3 innings. His next start will come during the regular season.
|Ian Kennedy kicked off last season as the Diamondbacks' ace, but he would finish the season as a member of the Padres' pitching staff. Kennedy was having a pretty brutal season for the Diamondbacks, going 3-8 with a 5.23 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 21 starts before being traded to San Diego for a minor-league pitcher and a left-handed reliever. It shows how quickly Kennedy declined since he was dealt to San Diego for a bargain-bottom price after he won 21 games in 2011 and 15 games in 2012. Kennedy didn't improve much for San Diego, going 4-2 with a 4.24 ERA and 1.34 WHIP in 10 starts. Kennedy's decline centered around command problems. He walked 3.6 batters per nine innings last season, which increased from 2.2 in 2011 and 2.4 in 2012, and he had a 63 percent strike rate, which declined from 67 percent in 2011 and 66 percent in 2012. There's potential for Kennedy to bounce back in 2014, but he's nothing more than a late-round pick in mixed leagues.
