Padres, Kennedy get past Cubs 4-3
Question of the Day
One would think, anyway.
“All my wins have been on the road,” Kennedy said. “That is how it works sometimes.”
Kennedy (3-6) allowed one run and two hits with six strikeouts. He walked two in earning his first win in five starts.
Huston Street got his 14th save in as many chances despite giving up Starlin Castro’s two-run homer in the ninth inning.
The Cubs, who had four hits, were trying to win their first series since Sept. 9-11 in Cincinnati.
“He deserved that one,” Padres manager Bud Black said. “He’s been a victim of not a lot of runs and if you look across the board at his numbers, all that stuff, he’s been good. We just haven’t scored for him and I’m glad we got it done in the bottom half of the sixth.”
It appeared Kennedy was headed for another tough-luck loss. He was trailing 1-0 when he left for a pinch-hitter in the sixth.
“I felt in complete command,” Hammel said. “I felt like I was going to go complete-game shutout. Everything was working.”
For Quentin, it was his third pinch-hit RBI in two games after a two-run, homer in Saturday’s loss.
“We were going to stay away a little bit from Quentin,” Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. “The ball just came back out over the plate.”
