Kennedy wins 19th, Diamondbacks beat Padres 4-1.

Right-hander Ian Kennedy notched his 19th win of the season as he struck out 11 in 7 innings of one run ball as the Diamondbacks took the first out of a four-game homestand against San Diego. Both Goldschimdt and Upton homered in Kennedy's 19th win, the most in the National League. Arizona gained a 7 1/2 game lead over the idle San Francisco Giants.
