Royals' Ian Kennedy: Secures third straight victory with eight-strikeout night

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/27/16) Kennedy (9-9) struck out eight and gave up two earned runs on nine hits and two walks over 5.1 innings in Friday's 6-3 victory over the Red Sox.

The veteran righty continued to miss plenty of bats Friday, notching at least eight whiffs for the sixth time over his last 11 starts. Kennedy has put together an outstanding August overall, surrendering only four earned runs over 32.1 innings, including three starts where he didn't give up any homers, long an Achilles heel for him. He's now rattled off three consecutive victories as well, evening his season record for the first time since June 26. He'll look to get over .500 for the first time since May 30 when he takes on the Yankees next Wednesday.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Earns win with fourth straight strong start

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/15/16) Kennedy (7-9) allowed just one run on five hits, walking one and striking out five over 6.2 innings in Monday's 3-1 win at Detroit.

Kennedy has gotten hot over his last four starts, allowing just three earned runs in 26 innings. The fact that this was his first victory in that stretch speaks volumes about the hardships that come with pitching for a team with a bottom-five offense. Saturday's matchup with a Twins squad that has the worst record in the American League offers a golden opportunity for Kennedy to earn consecutive wins after not getting a single victory since Jun. 26.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Tosses 6.1 solid frames in no-decision

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/11/16) Kennedy held the White Sox to one run over 6.1 innings Wednesday, allowing six hits and two walks while striking out two.

He didn't receive a decision in what turned out to be a 14-inning win for the Royals. Since allowing 11 runs in the span of two starts in late July, Kennedy's righted the ship with three consecutive outings of one or zero runs, pushing his ERA back under the 4.00 mark. This was, however, his worst strikeout total since June 21, as Kennedy has typically helped fantasy owners in whiffs this year.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Holds Rays to one hit over six innings Thursday

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(8/4/16) Kennedy (6-9) was nearly unhittable over six innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Rays. He allowed one hit and four walks while striking out nine.

The four walks were more than Kennedy had allowed in any of his previous 11 starts, but even that couldn't take away from his first one-hit performance since 2011. More notable for his current owners, the right-hander has now gone three straight starts without allowing a home run for the first time all year. The 31-year-old has allowed just one run on seven hits while striking out 15 over his last two outings (13 innings). Unfortunately he continued to be a victim of low run support, and Kennedy remains winless in his last six starts. He'll look to keep things rolling in his next start Wednesday versus a sputtering White Sox lineup.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Finishes winless July with quality start against Rangers

by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
(7/30/16) Kennedy (6-9) allowed one run over seven innings in a no-decision Friday versus the Rangers. He didn't issue a walk while striking out six.

Kennedy can't buy a win this month, as he finishes July with an 0-3 record despite a few solid outings. Friday marked just the fourth time this year (21 starts) Kennedy completed seven innings, and his first walk-free outing since last season. Over his last three seasons, the right-hander owns a combined 3.48 ERA in August, making the upcoming month Kennedy's best in recent years. He'll look to continue that trend when he travels to Tampa Bay for his next start Thursday.
