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.

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.

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...
