Diamondbacks Topple Padres 7-4 On Kennedy's Strong Outing

Phoenix, AZ (Sports Network) – Ian Kennedy pitched seven solid innings and the Diamondbacks used a balanced offensive attack to defeat the reeling San Diego Padres, 7-4, in the second of three games at Chase Field.

Kennedy (9-9) allowed three runs on seven hits with five strikeouts for the Diamondbacks, who have won two straight and five of their last six games overall. Mark Reynolds hit a two-run homer while Miguel Montero and Gerardo Parra both finished with two RBI in the victory.

Starting pitcher Kevin Correia suffered the loss for the Padres, who have dropped six straight games and saw their lead atop the NL West fall to 4 1/2 games over San Francisco. If the Giants beat the Rockies later Tuesday night, that number will shrink to four.

Correia (10-10) was charged with six runs on six hits to go along with six strikeouts and three walks in 4 1/3 frames. Nick Hundley contributed two runs batted in for San Diego.
