Royals' Ian Kennedy: Takes no-decision Tuesday against Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy pitched five innings, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five Twins in Tuesday's no-decision.

For the second straight game, Kennedy delivered a performance that left much to be desired. Tuesday's five-inning outing was his shortest since July 25 (a span of 12 starts), and marked the first time since early August that Kennedy has failed to win a game in consecutive starts. After an impressive streak in which he avoided defeat in 10 straight games, Kennedy appears to be coming back to earth as the season winds down.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Taken down by Indians on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kennedy (11-10) tossed 5.2 innings, allowing three runs on 10 hits and two walks while striking out four Indians in Wednesday's loss.

Entering Wednesday's contest, Kennedy hadn't allowed double-digit hits since Sep. 24 of last season, nearly a full calendar year. The righty's four strikeouts versus the Indians were his fewest in four starts this month, but his recent dominance should allow this outing to quickly be swept under the rug. Since the beginning of August, Kennedy has made 10 starts, going 5-1 with a stellar 2.48 ERA over 61.2 innings. His next start comes Tuesday at home against the Twins, a team he's beaten three times already this season.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Lucks out with win in rocky start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kennedy (10-9) went 5.1 innings Monday, allowing four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out six and earning the win over the Twins.

Despite allowing 11 baserunners and two home runs, Kennedy managed to prevent the big inning and give his offense a chance to win the game. Win the game they did, as the Royals offense put up 11 runs on Jose Berrios and the Twins. Kennedy has now won four of his last five starts, although he's allowed four earned runs in each of the last two, leaving him with a 3.76 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season. He'll look to keep the winning streak alive in Chicago against the White Sox on Sunday.

Royals' Ian Kennedy: Secures third straight victory with eight-strikeout night
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

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.
