I will not be able to watch today’s game until it’s archived on MLB.tv, but having ‘watched’ on Gameday, Kennedy pitched better than anyone could have expected: 7 ip, 5 h, 3 r, 1 er, 2 bb, 6 k, 96 pitches, 66 strikes. As of 5:50 pm, I’ve only watched highlights and Gameday, but what I saw was impressive. Kennedy’s fastball was consistently at 91, even hitting 93 a couple times (whereas scouting reports had him sitting 88-92 mph). The vertical movement looked like a four-seamer, but it moved in (a lot) to righties, so perhaps it was a two-seamer. If it was a two-seamer, it’s even more impressive because he threw it in the low 90s.
The hitters jumped on Edwin Jackson for seven runs (six earned) in 3.1 innings. Arod provided most of the offense, going 3-4 with a HR and double.
Since Seattle lost to Toronto, 2-1, the Yanks now have a two game lead in the wildcard. Nice!
