ICYMI: Padres bats come alive to back Kennedy

San Diego Padres

The Friars came out swinging on Wednesday, pounding out 16 hits en route to a 9-1 victory in the series finale at AT&T Park. Indeed, Wednesday's game had a little bit of everything for the Padres, including a stellar pitching performance by starter Ian Kennedy, who gave up only one run and struck out five in seven innings pitched against the Giants.

The Padres now continue their road trip and will embark on a "happy flight" out of San Francisco to start a four-game set against Arizona on Thursday. In case you missed it, here are some highlights and things you may not have seen on Wednesday:
