    • Padres' Matt Kemp: 12th inning bomb not enough
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kemp went 2-for-6 with a two-run, 12th inning home run that did not in face prove decisive, as the Padres lost 7-6 at the hands of the Blue Jays. Kemp's two-run blast in the top of the 12th was momentous but not enough, as the Padres bullpen blew the lead and lost the game on a walk-off wild pitch in the bottom of the 12th. The homer was Kemp's 23rd of the season, and brought his RBI total to 69. While hitting just .261, he's currently on pace to challenge his career high of 39 homers that he set back 2011 when he was 2nd in NL MVP voting.

    • Kemp went 2-for-4 with two doubles in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Nationals. The veteran slugger has now hit safely in eight straight, and has consecutive multi-hit outings. Kemp also has six homers in the last eight games, and is now slashing .260/.280/.490 over 388 at-bats this season.

    • After sitting out the afternoon game of Wednesday's doubleheader, Kemp returned to the lineup for the night game and went 1-for-4 with a solo homer against the Cardinals. That's four consecutive games with a homer for Kemp, who's now reached 20 long balls for the seventh time in his career. The way things are going, he should have no problem hitting 30 for the first time since his massive 2011 season, but Kemp's average is still lingering at .255 thanks to a subpar .278 BABIP. A better second-half hitter throughout his career, Kemp can reasonably be expected to improve his average down the stretch, which should help him rack up even more counting stats. It'd be nice to see him swipe some bases, though -- a former 40-steal man, he hasn't even attempted one this year.

    • Padres' Matt Kemp: Out of lineup Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kemp is out of the lineup in game one of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cardinals. It doesn't seem like this is anything other than a normal day off to stay fresh. There is a good chance he could play in the night game of the doubleheader after resting in the afternoon.

    • Padres' Matt Kemp: Out of Sunday's lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Kemp is out of the lineup Sunday against the Reds, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Manager Andy Green is just giving Kemp a needed break from the grind after the 31-year-old started each of the Padres' last 33 games. With Kemp hitting the bench, utility man Alexi Amarista will pick up a start in right field and bat eighth in the order.
