Padres P Ian Kennedy strikes out six in loss
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/25/15) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy struck out six batters in Wednesday night's 6-0 loss to the Giants.
Kennedy went six innings and allowed six runs, though only one was earned. The five runs he allowed in the third all went unearned, though he still gave up a home run to Buster Posey. It wasn't a good outing for Kennedy, who has struggled this season.
Kennedy allowed five hits and four walks. He now has a 5.09 ERA and a 4-6 record.

|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/14/15) Padres starter Ian Kennedy limited the Dodgers to one run on four hits over seven innings on Saturday. He walked one and struck out four, settling for a no-decision. The solid effort lowered Kennedy's ERA to 5.84.
The only run to score against Kennedy came on a solo home run by Yasmani Grandal in the third inning. That tied the game at 1-1, and the Padres earned a late-inning victory.
Kennedy will look to stay sharp in his next start, scheduled for Thursday in Oakland.

Padres SP Ian Kennedy whiffs eight, picks up win No. 3
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(6/3/15) Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy struck out eight and registered a quality start for the win Tuesday night against the Mets.
Kennedy (3-5) surrendered a run-scoring single to Michael Cuddyer in the opening frame and a run-scoring single to Wilmer Flores in the sixth inning for his only blemishes of the evening. He yielded two earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out six over six innings of a 7-2 victory. Of his 105 pitches, 71 were strikes.
"He's always been tough on us," Mets manager Terry Collins said, per MLB.com. "You look at his numbers against the Mets over his career, he's been tough. We just never get him squared up very good."
Kennedy lowered his ERA from 7.15 to 6.60 after Tuesday's gem.
"You're always working, always thinking about ways to improve," manager Bud Black said. "But primarily the work in the 'pen payed off. Once he got through that first inning, had a good second inning, you could see his confidence build with all his pitches."
He will look to remain in the rotation with another solid outing on Monday against the Braves in Atlanta.
|2014 summary: Ian Kennedy's first full season with the Padres went much better than the partial season he spent with them in 2013. The former Diamondback and Yankee ironed out his control issues and kept the ball in the park, helping him to post his lowest ERA (3.63) and WHIP (1.29) in three seasons. Kennedy also picked up his strikeout pace, and for the first time, he exceeded 200 strikeouts with a total of 207. |
Playing time status: Kennedy has been the subject of trade rumors, but whether in San Diego or elsewhere, he should figure prominently in a major league rotation.
2015 outlook: A pessimist could view Kennedy as inconsistent, but a more optimistic perspective is that he finally put some puzzle pieces together in 2014. Given that several indicators -- velocity, average flyball distance, strikes thrown percentage -- are all pointing strongly in the right direction, owners can have confidence that Kennedy's performance was not only legitimate, but that it could possibly get even better. He can be penciled in as a top 40 starter and a mid-round target in standard mixed league drafts.
