Padres RHP Ian Kennedy mashed in return from injury
by Marty Gitlin |

Perhaps Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy should get a mulligan for his disastrous start Saturday against the Dodgers. After all, it was his first outing after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Kennedy was clobbered for eight earned runs on eight hits, including three homers, in 4 1/3 innings. He walked one and fanned two.

The Dodgers teed off from the start as Andre Ethier socked a two-run blast and Carl Crawford added a run-scoring double in the first inning. A three-run tater by Adrian Gonzalez in the second gave Los Angeles a 6-3 lead. Kennedy also surrendered a two-run homer to Howie Kendrick in the fifth before his merciful removal.

He will have his first shot at redemption Friday against visiting Colorado.
