Kennedy wins Padres debut, 6-3 over Yankees

SAN DIEGO - Ian Kennedy won his San Diego debut, his first victory in more than two months, and Everth Cabrera, facing a 50-game suspension in baseball's latest drug scandal, had two hits and two RBIS as the Padres beat the New York Yankees 6-3 on Sunday.

The Padres took two of three from the Yankees, who got only 2 2-3 innings out of Phil Hughes (4-10).

Kennedy (4-8) was acquired from the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday. He was 0-5 with a 5.82 ERA in his last 10 starts with Arizona. He hadn't won since June 1 at the Chicago Cubs.

Cabrera, the Padres' All-Star shortstop, is among 14 players facing discipline in the Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic. Major League Baseball appears poised to levy suspensions Monday.
