Inside the Box for
August 28, 2011: Diamondbacks 6, Padres 1
In seven innings, D-backs starter Kennedy may have allowed six hits, but he hurt the Padres where it counts – the scoreboard. He only gave up one earned run. It also didn’t hurt that he struck out seven batters.
Collin Cowgill had a big day at the plate for the D-backs. He had four hits for the first time in his MLB career. Those hits combined brought in two runs.
While the D-backs won, new arrival John McDonald didn’t do much to help at the plate. In his four appearances, he did not get on base and struck out once.
Kennedy now leads the NL in wins with 17. His Sunday win also put the D-backs current win streak at six.
