New father Kennedy 3-hits Phillies as Diamondbacks win 4-0Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -- Ian Kennedy threw a three-hitter in the first complete game of his major league career, outpitching Cliff Lee to lift the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 4-0 victory Monday night that ended the Philadelphia Phillies' five-game winnings streak.
The Diamondbacks snapped a four-game skid as they opened a 10-game home stand after being swept in three games by the Mets in New York.
Kennedy (3-1) struck out 10 -- including Jimmy Rollins to end the game -- and walked none. He had come home early from the team's trip for the delivery of he and his wife's' first child, Nora Rose, at 2:04 a.m. on Sunday.
Chris Young and Gerardo Parra homered off Lee, both on the first pitch of an at-bat.
Lee (2-2) gave up four runs on five hits in seven innings, matching his season high with 12 strikeouts, one shy of his career high, and walking one.
