Padres' Kennedy out of home opener with hamstring injury

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) — San Diego Padres right-hander Ian Kennedy left Thursday's home opener against San Francisco after straining his left hamstring while making a pitch to Nori Aoki with one out in the third inning.

Kennedy signaled to the dugout that something was wrong, and manager Bud Black and a trainer came out to the mound. Kennedy was pulled immediately.

Odrsiamer Despaigne, who lost the spring training battle for the job as No. 5 starter to Brandon Morrow, came on and inherited a 2-1 count to Aoki. Aoki walked before Despaigne retired the side.
