Padres 9, Cardinals 0: Redbirds lay a goose egg

The Padres' fifth consecutive win looked like it was going to be a pitchers' duel for the first six and a half innings. Ian Kennedy looked the sharpest he has all season, and Carlos Martinez held the Friars to a single run over the first two thirds of the game. But in the pivotal seventh inning, the San Diego bullpen stepped up and the Cardinals imploded. Kennedy was on his A-game tonight. In six innings and change, he held St. Louis to seven hits and one walk while striking out ten. Martinez was sharp as well, but the offense scratched a run out of him in the fourth. Derek Norris led off...

Game 123 Preview: 08/22 Padres vs. Cardinals

The Padres look to keep things rolling against behind Ian Kennedy. The Padres opened up their series against the Cardinals with an exciting and eventful win last night. Travis Jankowski started off his big league career with a bang, Justin Upton hit the 600-career-RBI milestone, Andrew Cashner finally got some much-needed and deserved run support to help make up for yet another defensive error, and the Friars won their 500th game ever at Petco Park. It'll be Ian Kennedy on the mound for San Diego tonight, hoping to keep the Padres' recent run of success going and clinch a series win...

Game 118 Preview: 08/16 Padres @ Rockies

Ian Kennedy and Chris Rusin face off in the series finale in Colorado. The Padres and Rockies close out their three-game series at Coors Field this afternoon. The Padres took the first two games and are itching for a sweep, while the Rockies are looking to get back in the win column after extending their losing streak to six games. Ian Kennedy gets the start in today's finale, hoping for a second straight win. He kept the Reds to one run on five hits through five innings his last time out, striking out four batters but also issuing a season-high six walks. His one run allowed, though, was a...

Game 113 Preview: 08/10 Padres vs. Reds

The Padres open up a series at home against the the Reds tonight, sending Ian Kennedy to the hill to kick things off.

Ian Kennedy will get the start, hoping to improve on a 5-5 record and 5.26 ERA at home this season. He has improved at Petco Park lately, allowing only three combined runs in 12 innings over his last two home...

SD 5, MIL 8: Mateo's ugly 8th sinks Friar's ship

Kennedy was knocked to the ropes in the 1st, but fought back for another 6. The Padres had a rally in the 9th. But it didn't matter. It's not too often that you bounce back from a 4-run first inning, but today Ian Kennedy sure did. After the Padres rained runs on the Brewers two nights ago and suffered a run drought last night, there was some ugly in-between today. Anti-clutch at-bats and rally's that weren't enough to make up for big bullpen mistakes put the pin in a series-split clinching loss to the Boogers. It has been a heck of a week for Kennedy, though. Scratched on his last start,...

Game 108 Preview: 08/05 Padres @ Brewers

Game 3 of the four-game series at Miller Park will pit veteran Ian Kennedy against rookie Taylor Jungmann. The Padres won't be sweeping this four-game set in Milwaukee after dropping game 2 last night, but tonight they'll look to get the edge in the series as they send Ian Kennedy to the mound. Kennedy's coming off one of his best starts of the season, a seven-inning two-run performance against the Marlins. He didn't get a decision, though the Padres did go on to win it. Before that outing, Kennedy won two straight starts, going 12 total innings and allowing three combined runs while...

Game 103 Preview: 07/31 Padres @ Marlins

Kennedy will make the start tonight. The Padres just took two of three games in New York in dramatic fashion, and they're on a bit of a roll lately. They'll try to keep the good vibes as they continue their road trip down the east coast. They open up a series in Miami this afternoon, hoping to repeat the success they found when the Marlins visited San Diego last week. The Friars took three of the four-game set as. Ian Kennedy is scheduled to make the start on paternity leave, expecting his fourth child, so Odrisamer Despaigne will make the start in the series opener opposite David...
