A couple veteran pitchers who are finishing strong after a rough season will square off Friday night in Detroit.Kansas City’s Ian Kennedy and Detroit’s Francisco Liriano have a combined 7-18 record with ERAs above 4.50. Yet both have delivered a couple quality starts this month.Kennedy (2-8 http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-max-muncy-jersey , 4.73 ERA) faced Minnesota in back-to-back starts after returning from a left oblique strain that put him out of commission for nearly two months. He pitched six innings and limited the Twins to one earned run in each of those outings.Article continues below ...Kennedy snapped his 17-game winless streak in his most recent start Saturday.“I just knew it was a really long time,” Kennedy told MLB.com. “It was a matter of time before it happened. Sometimes it’s out of your control. There are some times when I pitch bad and sometimes when you pitch good and things don’t work out. I was just happy to come back from the disabled list and pitch well.”Liriano (5-10, 4.54 ERA) had a similar stretch this season. When he posted a victory over the Chicago White Sox on Sept. 4, it snapped a streak of 17 consecutive appearances without a win.He also picked up the victory in his last outing Sunday, holding Cleveland to three runs and five hits in seven innings with seven strikeouts. It helped that the Indians rested their regulars after clinching the American League Central the previous day.Liriano, 34, will become a free agent at the end of the season. He’s hoping to land another contract and a solid September won’t hurt.“It’s important to finish strong,” he told the Detroit News. “Not just for me but for the whole team. Just want to finish strong and then see what happens next year.”Tigers rookie left fielder Christin Stewart is certainly finishing strong. Stewart hit the first two homers of his career during the first two innings in the opener of the four-game series. The Tigers won the slugfest 11-8 in a game featuring seven homers.“I’ll remember this day for the rest of my life Ross Stripling Jersey ,” said Stewart, who drove in six runs.Stewart hit 23 homers at Triple-A Toledo before his September call-up.“Big smile on his face, I know that, and big home runs for us,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “This kid’s had a heck of a year and it hasn’t gone great for him so far offensively (with Detroit) and that just shows you a little bit of what he can do. He can get the barrel on the ball and put it in the seats.”Detroit was swept in a three-game home series by Minnesota before handing Kansas City its 101st loss this season.“We had a good night,” Gardenhire said. “We had a lot of guys swinging the bats and running around after a really bad series against the Twins, where they kicked our butts. It was nice to come back here and win a ballgame.”Liriano is 1-0 with a 2.28 ERA in four starts versus Kansas City this season and 8-5, 3.94 in 23 games (20 starts) in his career. Kennedy is 3-4 http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-max-muncy-jersey , 3.59 in 10 starts versus Detroit, including a no-decision this season when he pitched six scoreless innings in the Royals’ 4-2 victory May 4. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — For the third time in five years, Nick Hundley is starting over. This time, the 35-year-old is part of a catching platoon in Oakland where he’ll be splitting time with Josh Phegley.It’s not unlike other situations Hundley has been through in his career. He spent the past two seasons behind Buster Posey in San Francisco, was a backup in Colorado and Baltimore prior to that, and split time as a starter over seven years in San Diego.With so much activity on his resume, Hundley has become accustomed to learning quickly, something that’s come in handy as he tries to find a comfort zone with the Athletics.“For a guy like him who’s been different places and a veteran guy Joc Pederson Jersey , it’s easier for him to figure it out on the fly,” manager Bob Melvin said prior to Tuesday’s exhibition game in San Francisco. “Even though it’s been a shortened spring, a guy like him figures it out pretty quickly. I’m not too worried about him learning our staff. He’s caught everybody and understands the nuances. He’s one of those quarterback-type guys.”Hundley started and had a sacrifice fly in the A’s 4-2 rain-shortened win over the Giants in San Francisco in the exhibition finale for both teams Tuesday. Melvin planned to play Phegley as well, but the game was called after seven innings.Aaron Brooks strengthened his grip on the No. 5 spot in the A’s rotation. Brooks allowed one run over 5 1/3 innings, striking out five and walking two.Oakland was left to scramble for a catcher after losing Jonathan Lucroy in free agency. Melvin repeatedly credited Lucroy with playing a key role in the development of Oakland’s young pitchers and helping the staff stay on course after injuries depleted the rotation last season.Phegley began his career in Chicago but has spent the past four seasons bouncing back and forth between the A’s and the minor leagues. Phegley has a career .232 batting average with 22 home runs and 98 RBIs.Hundley signed with Oakland in February and underwent a crash course in learning the A’s pitchers.“I appreciate the youth that’s on this team,” Hundley said. “So much energy, it keeps you young. These guys had a really good year last year and are hungry to go out and do it again.”The A’s have yet to formalize exactly how they plan to split time between the two catchers. Both are right-handed hitters so it won’t necessarily be a platoon based on pitching matchups. Hundley and Phegley also spent the spring working with as many of Oakland’s pitchers as possible.“We’re still kind of trial and error with that,” Melvin said. “We like both of them. Both of them do a nice job running the game so it might be as simple as the hot hand.”ROUGH NIGHT FOR SAMARDZIJAJeff Samardzija had a tough night in his final outing of the spring http://www.dodgersfanproshop.com/authentic-max-muncy-jersey , allowing four runs over 3 2/3 innings. Likely to be the Giants fifth starter, Samardzija struck out three, walked one, hit a batter and allowed a two-run home run to Mark Canha.“Left some balls on the plate and was behind in the count a lot,” Samardzija said. “I had to attack the zone in hitter’s counts which is always a tough spot. They’re a patient team and always have been.”GIANTS MOVESSan Francisco continues to tinker with its pitching staff, acquiring left-handed reliever Williams Jerez from the Los Angeles Angels in exchange for right-hander Chris Stratton. Jerez had a 6.00 ERA in 17 relief appearances last season with 15 strikeouts and eight walks in 15 innings. The Giants also optioned left-hander Ty Blach to Triple-A Sacramento.UP NEXTAthletics: The A’s have an off day Wednesday before resuming Thursday against the Los Angeles Angels at the Coliseum. RHP Mike Fiers (0-1, 15.00 ERA) makes his second start.Giants: LHP Madison Bumgarner pitches the opener Thursday in San Diego. Bumgarner was 1-3 with an 8.27 ERA in six spring starts.__
