Ian Kennedy has lived up to his billing as the Diamondbacks' ace in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Milwaukee Brewers. Through three innings, Kennedy has given up only one hit and has struck out four Brewers.
Justin Upton delivered the only run of the game, driving a full count pitch from Yovani Gallardo over the right field fence in the top of the third inning.
Gallardo has thrown 66 pitches through the first three innings, while Kennedy threw 36. In the first two innings, the Diamondbacks had runners in scoring position before finally breaking through with the Upton home run in the third.
Kennedy showed off his skills with the bat, fighting off several Gallardo pitches in the top of the second with two men on base. The inning ended with a line drive caught by Ryan Braun, but the D-backs are attacking Gallardo in every single at-bat.
