SAN DIEGO -- Ian Kennedy's solid pitching and offensive production throughout the San Diego Padres lineup was enough to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 12-2 on Wednesday night.
Kennedy (7-10) struck out seven and allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings while facing his ex-team for the second time since being acquired by the Padres on July 31. He had a no-decision in their previous encounter.
The Padres hit three homers, four batters had at least two RBIs and four batters finished with multiple hits.
Jedd Gyorko continued his solid season, as his 21st home run placed him one ahead of the Atlanta Braves' Evan Gattis for the major league lead among rookies. Chase Headley had three RBIs, with Gyorko and Chris Denorfia getting two each.
