Last night, Ian Kennedy made another nice stride toward his recovery from an annyurism, as he tossed 3 pefect innings against AAA Durham, striking out 6 in the process. The reason he was pulled after 3 innings was that he was on a 50 pitch limit. Kennedy will now head to the Arizona Fall League to continue his rehab. He will definitely get a look next year, so hopefully all goes well with his rehab.
As for the rest of the game, unfortunately for Scranton, Kei Igawa came in relief of Kennedy and took the loss as he gave up 3 runs in 4 innings, leading to their second loss of the International League Championship Series. It’s a best-of-five series, so we may be looking at some more call-ups in the very near future.
