Diamondbacks ace Ian Kenndey gave up consecutive homers then was hit on knee by a comebacker on next pitch, and Arizona lost 10-6 to the San Diego Padres on Saturday. Kennedy bruised his left knee but should remain on his regular schedule. He left after getting hit and having allowed four runs in 3 2-3 innings, his first earned runs allowed this spring. Padres starter Tyson Ross pitched 5 1-3 shutout innings, extending his scoreless streak to 11 1-3 innings. Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso had his first multihit game of spring training, going 2 for 3 with a home run, a double and two RBIs.

If you are a Padres fan (if you’re reading this, you should be) and if you were also rooting for the US team in the World Baseball Classic, then you witnessed two comeback attempts in one day. Only one of them worked though and the other ended in a loss and ends a run to the WBC title. Puerto Rico was able to hold off a surge at the end of the game that the US tried to pull off...

Daily Friar 3.15.13

One thing can be said about the World Baseball Classic: there isn’t a lack of drama! The US could have won the game last night and wrote their ticket to the semis. Instead Craig Kimbrel had a rare meltdown and the Dominican Republic moved on instead. It is not over for the US yet though as they get one more shot tonight to make it to the next round. Standing in their way is Puerto...
