03/16 Padres Preview: ST Game 19 vs. Royals

Christian Petersen

The Padres will send righty Ian Kennedy to the hill to face Royals southpaw Jason Vargas.

Ian Kennedy struggled early his last time out, but today he'll try to get back on track, making his fourth Spring start when the Padres host the Royals in Peoria. The right-hander gave up four runs total in four innings of work, but three of those runs came home in the first inning. Altogether this Spring, he's allowed six runs, but has only allowed one walk while racking up six strikeouts.

Taking the mound opposite Kennedy will be Kansas City's projected no. 2 starter, Jason Vargas. The southpaw has only allowed one run, on 10 hits and a walk, through nine innings this Spring.
