Sunday afternoon, 5,000 kids walked into Chase Field and were handed Ian Kennedy Growth Charts. Three hours later, 27,564 fans walked out of Chase Field after Kennedy and the D-backs handed the Padres a series sweep in a 6-1 victory.
Kennedy’s seven innings of one-run baseball propelled the D-backs to their sixth straight win, their largest division lead all season—four games—and Kennedy to the top of the NL with 17 wins.
Tied with the Phillies’ Roy Halladay and the Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw entering the game, Kennedy allowed one run on six hits, struck out seven and didn’t issue a walk to trail only the Tigers’ Justin Verlander (20) for the Major League lead in wins.
