Pro Sports Daily:
It’s been a whirlwind week for Ian Kennedy.
Four days after being acquired by the Padres via a trade the right-handed pitcher Sunday afternoon found himself on the mound at Petco Park facing the New York Yankees – the team that had originally drafted him in the first round in 2006.
Kennedy admitted he had “adrenaline and emotion” working for him at the start of the game.
But in the sixth inning he ran out of both.
“I tired at the end” admitted Kennedy. “It was a crazy week a long week.”
And a successful week.
Because his offense gave him a 6-0 lead early and his bullpen allowed only one run over the final 3 1/3 innings Kennedy won his debut in San Diego as the Padres defeated the Yankees 6-3 to win the rubber match of a three-game series.
Kennedy allowed two runs on four hits and four walks over 5 2/3 innings. He struck out six Yankees as the Padres won a fourth straight series to improve to 11-6 over their last 17 games.
Not that Kennedy was the only story:

And here is what happened on A-Rod’s first official day back in the pinstripes:
- MLB finally handed out the infamous Biogenesis suspensions yesterday, and A-Rod got the heftiest at 211-games. The other 12 players busted will sit out 50-games, which is standard...
Sorry for the absence in the Round-Up, I’ve been out of town for the past few days. Time to catch up! Matt Andriese and Max Fried both had outstanding starts for the T-Pads and the TinCaps, respectively. Lake Elsinore’s pitching staff was completely destroyed; they allowed 26 runs.

New York Yankees 3 — San Diego Padres 0
Ivan Nova continues to string together great starts with tonight’s 3-0 win over the San Diego Padres.
The Yankees faced starter Tyson Ross and were having a terrible time figuring him out. In the first four innings, Ross faced the minimum. He would also...
Alex Rodriguez thinks he is going to start at 3rd base for the New York Yankees tonight. He thinks MLB is going to turn a blind eye to his situation and he thinks he has a chance to win on appeal. Did those PED’s have a bad effect on his brain? A-Rod has to be kidding himself. Major League Baseball is talking about suspending him through the 2014 season. Why they don’t give the...
It is certainly no secret that Yankees radio broadcaster Suzyn Waldman sees things through a Yankees-colored light to the point that she probably wears pinstriped pajamas. But she found a new way to prove that sometimes, at least, she just doesn’t see all of reality.
Waldman and longtime radio partner John Sterling were on hand Monday night in Chicago where Yankees third baseman...
The New York Yankees put shortstop Derek Jeter back on the disabled list Monday in the latest setback in an injury-filled season for the captain.
Jeter is out with a strained right calf. The return to the DL came on the same day teammate Alex Rodriguez was suspended through the 2014 season in a drug case.
With Jeter going on the DL, the Yankees recalled infielder Dave Adams from...
The Yankees square off against the White Sox in the second game of a three-game series tonight from Chicago. Alex Rodriguez is back in the lineup, this time as the designated hitter in the three-hole. Tonight also features a great pitching match-up with Hiroki Kuroda going against hard throwing lefty Chris Sale. Check out our game preview here.

Maybe the Yankees were thinking of waiting a couple of more days to see how Derek Jeter‘s injured calf would respond but that would have required cutting an infielder to make room for the returning Alex Rodriguez on Monday. Instead they chose the prudent course and placed Jeter on the disabled list for the third time this season.
Jeter who suffered a fractured ankle in the postseason...
Alex Rodriguez will reportedly appeal any suspension levied by MLB in connection to Biogensis and PEDs. This meme shows what his defense will be.
There he was in front of a microphone just prior to the Yankees game against the White Sox. Alex Rodriguez, who the league had just hours earlier said they would suspend him on Thursday for the remainder of the 2013 season and all of 2014, was talking of how he would use the grievance process afforded him by the league and MLBPA’s drug agreement, yet never answered whether he ever...
When news broke thatMajor League Baseball had suspended Alex Rodriguez through 2014, opinions ranged far and wide on the punishment for the slugger and whether or not it was fair. While Rodriguez has vowed to fight the suspension, one person had an interesting theory on why A-Rod has had so many troubles lately.
Former Florida Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen chimed in with his thoughts...
In the final blow from the Biogenesis scandal, Major League Baseball has suspended Yankees’ third baseman, Alex Rodriguez, through the end of the 2014 season. The punishment extends 211 regular season games and would also include any postseason opportunities this year or next year for the former All-Star.
A-Rod’s punishment came last on a busy Monday full of 12 other suspensions...
WFAN cut to every Alex Rodriguez at bat last night. Besides the overkill, you had the demented one, Suzyn Waldman, hearing and seeing things. Sure, cheers for Arod but -- wow, Friday's going to be like Kim Jong-un has returned home.

However you feel about the Alex Rodriguez debacle, you have to agree that it makes for excellent baseball television. Personally, I’m quite enjoying the circus – schadenfreude has always been one of my strong suits.
When A*Rod takes the field in Chicago, he’ll doubtless face a loud chorus of boos and jeers. After talking to a few Yankees fans, I don’t think...
