Kennedy surrendered four runs on one hit and four walks while striking out two across 1.2 innings Friday against the Reds. He didn't factor into the decision.
Kennedy failed to make it out of the second inning, allowing four runs while recording five outs. He didn't appear to have his command early, tossing just 20 of 44 pitches for strikes. Kennedy was coming off a stellar outing against the Rockies (six shutout innings), but he failed to build off the success he found last time out. Through six starts this year, Kennedy owns a 6.75 ERA and 1.80 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 26.2 frames.
Kennedy (1-2) got the win against the Rockies on Friday, throwing six shutout innings while yielding just four hits, striking out two and walking two in San Diego's 7-0 victory.
The right-hander has now looked solid in three straight contests after giving up 11 runs in his first two starts, and he was rewarded with his first win of the season for this strong showing against a tough Rockies lineup. Kennedy's still got a bloated 5.76 ERA and a 1.72 WHIP through his 25 innings, so he has a long way to go before he could be deemed a viable fantasy play.
Kennedy gave up three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out five over five innings and settling for a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.
Kennedy got off to a rough start, serving up a three-run homer to Manny Machado in the first inning. The rookie settled down and tossed four scoreless frames to salvage his outing. The long ball continues to plague the 24-year-old, as Saturday's homer was the sixth he has surrendered in just four starts this month. Kennedy is lined up to make one more start before rosters expand, but he shouldn't draw much fantasy interest in a home matchup against the Rockies next Friday.
Kennedy allowed two runs on three walks and six hits across give innings in Sunday's 4-3 loss to Arizona. He took the no-decision, striking out four batters and yielding a homer.
It was a pretty lackluster outing for Kennedy, but certainly better than his first two big league outings. He entered Sunday's contest having given up 11 runs on 20 hits in just nine innings. Assuming the rookie righty stays with the Padres, he'll get his next start against the Dodgers on Saturday.
Kennedy (0-2) took the loss Tuesday, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings against the Angels.
Kennedy allowed four extra-base hits in the outing -- a home run, a triple and two doubles -- and he didn't appear to be fooling hitters as he induced just three swings and misses. The 24-year-old was a perfect 10-0 with Triple-A El Paso, but he's now yielded 11 runs on 20 hits with just five strikeouts in nine innings in his first two big-league starts -- both losses. If he's given another turn through the rotation, Kennedy lines up to take on the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
