Yankees Fall To Ian Kennedy & The Padres

Even with the return of Curtis Granderson, the 2013 New York Yankees line-up is not one built to overcome early deficits. On Sunday afternoon, an early deficit is exactly what Phil Hughes left them with, and the result was a 6-3 loss in San Diego.

Hughes lasted only 2 1/3 innings, allowing 6 hits and surrendering 5 imposing runs. He failed to match the solid performance of his former roommate and ex-Yankee prospect Ian Kennedy, who allowed only two runs while working 5 2/3 innings in his first start with the Padres. Kennedy was traded from the Arizona Diamondbacks at last week’s deadline.

The Yankee bats attempted to crawl back in the 6th inning, closing a 6-0 lead to 6-2 with RBI singles by Curtis Granderson and Lyle Overbay. Austin Romaine added a solo home run, the first of his career, the following inning.

Huston Street allowed a single and a walk to bring the tying run to the plate in the ninth, but got Vernon Wells to strike out to secure the victory and record the save.
