Inside the Box for July
16, 2011: Diamondbacks 3, Dodgers 2
Ian Kennedy has had a great season so far, and he got a well-deserved win Saturday night. In his seven innings, he gave up five hits and only two earned runs. Kemp was able to grab a homer off of Kennedy, but that looked to be his only errant pitch of the game. He walked one and struck out seven.
Kennedy’s win was his career-high tenth of the season. He know holds a 10-3 record.
For as good as Kennedy was throwing the ball, the D-backs bats struggled to give him run support. They only managed two put together five hits for a total of three runs. The D-backs two representatives in the All-Star game, Justin Upton and Miguel Montero, combined for a total of one hit. Maybe that break let some of the D-backs hitters get a little rusty.
None of the four runs the D-backs scored against the
Dodgers were earned.
