Recap: San Diego vs. Arizona

San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Chris Young hit a solo home run, Ian Kennedy recorded nine strikeouts over six innings and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres, 3-1, in the rubber match of a three-game series at Petco Park.

Kennedy (2-0) settled in nicely after allowing three consecutive hits to start the first inning. The right-hander gave up only two more hits over the rest of his outing while improving to 6-0 against San Diego in his career.

"[Kennedy] shows up ready to go every day," Young said.

Aaron Hill and Jason Kubel knocked in the other runs for the Diamondbacks, who bounced back from their first loss of the season.

Anthony Bass started in place of the injured Dustin Moseley and limited Arizona to a run on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.

Micah Owings (0-2) replaced Bass after Hill's game-tying single up the middle and got Kennedy to ground into an inning-ending double play. Owings returned to the mound in the sixth and surrendered a double to Kubel that plated Willie Bloomquist, who had reached on a throwing error by shortstop Jason Bartlett to begin the sixth, with the go-ahead run.

Young extended Arizona's lead to 3-1 with a two-out shot to left field in the eighth off Andrew Cashner.

J.J. Putz tossed a 1-2-3 ninth to pick up his fourth save.

Cameron Maybin led off the first with a triple and scored on a base hit by Will Venable. Chase Headley followed with another single, but Kennedy struck out the next three batters to end the frame.

"We strung some hits together early on him and then he worked his way out of that," Headley said. "After that, he was pretty dialed in the rest of the night."

Game Notes

Kennedy is now 8-0 in his last nine starts, and 12-0 in his last 17 starts against the NL West...Young tied Mark Reynolds (121) for third place on the D-Backs' all-time list...Bloomquist singled to begin the game and extend his hitting streak to a career-high-tying 12 games...Moseley is on the disabled list with a shoulder injury.
