Free MLB Pick
Philadelphia rookie pitcher is coming off the best outing of his young career going 8 innings and not giving up any earned runs in a 2-0 win over the Miami Marlins. The Phillies have won 5 of their last 6 games when he has gotten the starting nod. Ian Kennedy is 4-2 with a 2.27 ERA in 7 starts since the All-Star break and in his last outing he went 7 innings and did not give up any earned runs in a 8-0 win over the St. Louis Cardinals. San Diego has won 2 of their last 3 games with Kennedy on the hill.
I am going with the visiting Padres in this one, as Kennedy is hot and the Phillies are not.
