Padres CF Will Venable sits against lefty on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Padres outfielder Will Venable is out of the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Pirates. Venable had started each of the last eight games for the Padres, going 11 for 32 with a double and three RBI in that stretch.

But, with the Pirates throwing a left-hander on Friday, Venable will take a seat. He is just 2 for 9 against southpaws this season.

Switch-hitter Abraham Almonte will get the start in center field and bat seventh on Friday against starter Francisco Liriano.

Padres' Bud Black: Ian Kennedy 'bummed' about Thursday's loss
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After it appeared Padres starting pitcher Ian Kennedy turned the corner in his previous start against the Dodgers, his issues resurfaced in a loss Thursday against the Padres, as he allowed seven runs in 3 2/3 innings.

"He is bummed because he was looking forward to this one,'' manager Bud Black said, per MLB.com. "He got some pitches elevated and they didn't miss them.''

Kennedy has now lost his last four starts and has seen his ERA balloon to 7.15.

"I'm falling behind hitters and it's tough to pitch like that,'' Kennedy said.

The right-hander said the strained left hamstring that landed him on the disabled list is not the reason for his woes. 

"There is definitely no pain,'' he said. 

Kennedy struggled with his fastball command Thursday.

"I don't know if I'm yanking the ball, pushing the ball,'' he said. "I've been up and down and it's very frustrating. My fastball command was all over the place."

Kennedy, who did record his 1,000th career strikeout on Thursday, said he will work with pitching coach Darren Balsley to figure out how to end this slide.

"You have to be as consistent as possible and my career has been about that,'' Kennedy said. "This has been a real test with the way I've pitched."

Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks went 3 for 4 at the plate during Thursday's contest, but it was not enough as the Padres fell 11-5 to the Pirates.

All three of the hits for Middlebrooks were singles. He drove in one run and scored a run during the game.

Middlebrooks is 9 for 22 with two home runs and five RBI in his last five games. During that time, he has raised his batting average from .211 to .240.

Padres SP Ian Kennedy struggles in Thursday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Padres pitcher Ian Kennedy ran into trouble during the first inning of Thursday's 11-5 loss to the Pirates and it never got better for Kennedy.

Kennedy (2-5) allowed seven runs on seven hits over 3 2/3 innings of work during the loss. He struck out five batters and walked two. The long ball was Kennedy's undoing. Kennedy gave up a three-run home run to Jung Ho Kang in the first inning. He also surrendered a solo home run Gregory Polanco in the second and a two-run home run to Starling Marte in the third.

Kennedy has allowed five or more runs in three of his last four starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday against the Mets.

Padres SP Brandon Morrow said he feels good after simulated game
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Padres pitcher Brandon Morrow threw 45 pitches during a simulated game Thursday and he said the outing went well, reports MLB.com.

"It felt good,'' Morrow said. "It's all been positive."

Morrow tossed three 15-pitch innings during the simulated game and manager Bud Black was pleased with what he saw from Morrow.

"I thought he did well," Black said."I thought his stuff, in a situation like this, was really good. His fastball had some good life to it and his secondary pitches had sharpness, his changeup was good."

Morrow is on the 15-day DL with right shoulder inflammation, but he said the shoulder is feeling good.

"This is the best [my shoulder] has felt all year,'' Morrow said.

If he does not suffer any setbacks over the weekend, Morrow could begin pitching in rehabilitation games next week.
