Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick gets first win since Opening Day


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Kendrick ended a long winless drought Wednesday against the Reds, winning for the first time since Opening Day. The right-hander allowed four runs on five hits and one walk, while striking out one in 7 1/3 innings during a 6-4 win.

Kendrick (2-6) took the mound in the bottom of the first inning with a three-run lead. He gave up a two-out solo home run to Todd Frazier in the first inning, but he didn't allow another run until the eighth.

Tucker Barnhart led off the eighth with a home run. Kendrick then recorded a pop out before allowing a single to Billy Hamilton and a walk to Skip Schumaker. He was then lifted from the game. Both Hamilton and Schumaker would score, charging all three runs in the inning to Kendrick.

"The first couple of innings, I got quick outs and the ball was moving well, my sinker was good," said Kendrick, who got nine outs off ground balls, per the Associated Press. "I got ahead in the count and got early contact. As a starter, that's what you want to do."

The right-hander will look to keep the momentum going in his next start Tuesday against the Dodgers.

He moved his ERA to 6.70 in 47 innings of work. Kendrick will look to get back on track Friday against the Giants.


Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick bounces back in no-decision


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Rockies starter Kyle Kendrick smacked around for six runs in loss


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Justin Upton knocked a two-run homer off Kendrick in the first inning and Derek Norris added another two-run shot of the right hander in the fourth.

"The results aren't there," Kendrick said. "I have to just keep getting after it. They put some balls in play, hit some good pitches. It's frustrating, obviously, when the results aren't there."

Kendrick's start on Sunday was moved up a day in order to let rotation mate Tyler Matzek rest his hamstring.

Kendrick's next scheduled start is Saturday against the Dodgers.

Rockies' Kyle Kendrick on struggles: 'The cutter hasn't been great'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Kendrick has posted an 11.14 ERA over his last four starts. He has allowed six runs in three of those starts.

“The cutter hasn’t been great,” Kendrick said, per The Denver Post. “It’s been getting hit quite a bit. So I’ll have to make an adjustment. Maybe I’m throwing it too much.”

In five starts, Kendrick is throwing his cutter at about 30 percent. In eight years with the Phillies, he threw it about 20 percent of the time.


Rockies SP Kyle Kendrick serves up two HRs in loss to D-Backs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Kendrick has allowed six-plus earned runs in three of his first four starts this season. He owns a 8.36 ERA, a 1.79 WHIP and 18 strikeouts over 28 innings.

"My first three starts I wasn't aggressive. Tonight I wanted to be aggressive like my last start, but so were they," Kendrick said, per MLB.com. "I was trying to get ahead, but they were out there swinging, especially in that first inning. They swung the bats really well. Obviously, I wasn't good at all. I just have to keep battling."

Kendrick will look to get back on track Monday at home against Arizona.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The right-hander, who spent his previous eight seasons with the Phillies, gave a ton of credit to catcher Nick Hundley for his performance Monday.

"He takes a lot of pride in his game calling," Kendrick said Hundley, per The Denver Post. "He took over the meeting this morning, talking about their hitters and their lineup. I just sat back and listened. I've faced these guys quite a bit, but he was right on the number calling his pitches. His game plan was great."

Kendrick threw first-pitch fastballs to 19 of the 27 batters he faced. Also, four of his six strikeouts were looking.

"I threw a lot of changeups and sinkers, not many cutters today. It kept them off balance, moving the ball in and out," Kendrick said. "That was all Nick. I had never pitched in that much in my career against these guys. I learned something today."

Kyle Kendrick not afraid of the challenges of pitching at Coors Field


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) Rockies starting pitcher Kyle Kendrick is going from one hitter's park to another, moving from Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park to Colorado's Coors Field. His career numbers at both parks aren't great, as he has a 4.39 ERA and 1.36 WHIP at Citizens and a 5.26 ERA and 1.46 WHIP at Coors.

Regardless of his past struggles in hitter's park, Kendrick is not worried about what lies ahead at one of the top offensive parks in the majors.

"I'm not going to strike out 20 guys a game, although I'll get my share," Kendrick said, per MLB.com. "I'm going to pitch to contact, get early outs and pitch deep in the game. In that ballpark [Coors Field], with that offense, if you give up three or four runs in seven innings, a lot of times you're going win the game. I wasn't afraid of signing."

Rockies manager Walt Weiss also outlined his expectations for the veteran right-handed hurler.

"We are looking for guys that compete well and are out to win games, period, not get caught up in their ERA or some other statistics," Weiss said. "Kyle fits that bill."
