SAN DIEGO -- Ian Kennedy had a winning debut with the Padres even as San Diego braced for the expected loss of shortstop Everth Cabrera to a 50-game suspension in baseballs latest drug scandal. Kennedy earned his first victory in more than two months and Everth Cabrera 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. Kennedy 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 hadnt won since June 1 at the Chicago Cubs. "The adrenaline got the best of me later on, but early on I started feeling it, trying to control it," Kennedy said. "A lot of things going on. First start, against the team that drafted me, it was a lot into it, coming over here. I got the first one out of the way and the offence carried me." Kennedy (4-8) was taken by the Yankees in the first round of the June 2006 draft. He was traded to Arizona in December 2009. Kennedy faltered in the sixth, allowing consecutive two-out walks to Robinson Cano and Alfonso Soriano followed by RBI singles by Curtis Granderson and Lyle Overbay. That was it for Kennedy, who allowed two runs and four hits in 5 2-3 innings, struck out six and walked four. Manager Bud Black said he thought Kennedy pitched well. "Anytime you come to a new team theres emotion and theres quite a bit of adrenaline, and I think at the end he sort of ran out of it a little bit. I think he tired a little bit quicker than what youll see in the future. I think thats what happened there in the sixth inning. "Again, for him, its been three days of a lot of emotions, getting traded and coming to a new club," Black said. "I thought he handled it well. I liked what I saw. I told him thats going to be one of many wins for the Padres." Kennedy said he welcomed the fresh start. "Coming here, within the division is a little bit different because Ive faced these guys I dont know how many times over the years," Kennedy said. "But you get a different perspective from the pitching coach, or video guys, the manager, just a little different. I like it." 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. Yankees All-Star third baseman Alex Rodriguez is another of the players set to face discipline. Major League Baseball has informed New York that Rodriguez will be suspended Monday in the Biogenesis drug case, but can play while he appeals the penalty, a person familiar with deliberations told The Associated Press on Sunday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement was authorized. "I want him back with us. This is arguably one of the best hitters of all-time," Granderson said. "Having him in the lineup is obviously going to be very positive for us." Rodriguez is set to make his season debut when the Yankees play the Chicago White Sox. Cabrera singled in two runs with two outs in the three-run second before getting thrown out trying to steal second. He leads the NL and is second in the majors with 37 steals. He doubled leading off the fourth, advanced on Alexi Amaristas groundout and scored on Chase Headleys single to give the Padres a 6-0 lead. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 21st save in 22 chances. Yankees rookie catcher Austin Romine hit his first career homer, a solo shot into the Padres bullpen beyond the centre field fence off Dale Thayer with one out in the seventh. Hughes (4-10) had his second-shortest outing of the season, allowing five runs and six hits while striking out one and walking one. "He couldnt put people away," manager Joe Girardi said. "The bottom line is, he didnt make pitches when he had to." Hughes, whos 0-3 in his last five starts, agreed. "I blew an opportunity there in the second to get an out, two outs, and it comes down to not making quality pitches when I had to," he said. "There were runners in scoring position and a lot of long counts and just a battle the entire time. Unfortunately, I wasnt able to execute a couple of big pitches with two outs." The Southern California native got through the first inning unscathed but was roughed up in the second and third innings. He allowed singles to Will Venable and Chris Denorfia opening the second before Mark Kotsay hit a sacrifice fly. He then walked Nick Hundley before Kennedy sacrificed ahead of Cabreras two-run single. Hughes again put on the first two batters in the third, allowing a single to Amarista and walking Headley, and again, both scored. Denorfia hit a sacrifice fly and Kotsay hit an RBI single with two outs. The Yankees are a season-worst 9 1/2 games out of first place in the AL East and 4 1/2 out in the race for the second wild-card spot.

NEW YORK -- One of the Kentucky freshmen stepped up big from the outside while the rest of the Wildcats took care of things with defense.Malik Monks 23 points on 7-for-11 shooting from 3-point range and the second-ranked Wildcats defense that held No. 13 Michigan State to 32.8 percent shooting combined for a 69-48 victory Tuesday night in the State Farm Champions Classic at Madison Square Garden.These guys took some pride defensively here, Kentucky coach John Calipari said. Michigan State they run great stuff. They iso and do things that forced us to prepare beyond where we are.The Wildcats (3-0) averaged 90 points in their first two games but this time it was defense that did it as the Spartans (0-2) shot 32.8 percent from the field (20 of 61) including 5 for 26 (19.2 percent) from beyond the arc.Relying on another talented freshman class, Kentucky was able to up the tempo enough and keep the tenacious defense going that the Spartans committed 20 turnovers which the Wildcats turned into 24 points.Freshman DeAaron Fox added 12 points for Kentucky, which snapped Michigan States two-game winning streak in the series that the Wildcats lead 13-11.We knew they were going pack it in. I just had to be prepared, Monk said. They set me up well. I was just able to knock down the shot.Kenny Goins and Cassius Winston led the Spartans with nine points each. Freshman Miles Bridges was held to six points on 2-for-11 shooting but he grabbed 12 rebounds.We did a couple of things knowing that if he got going he would be a beast, Calipari said of Bridges. He had 12 rebounds, but the way we played, we just made it really difficult for him to just play basketball.Spartans coach Tom Izzo said, Im actually a little embarrassed. I felt like we competed defensively for the most part, we just didnt do anything offensively. We looked like a team that was an AAU team, we just went 1-on-1 didnt move the ball and got frustrated.The Spartans were coming off a 68-65 loss to No. 10 Arizona in Honolulu.I was very disappointed in the way we were kind of `deer in the headlights but you know you have four freshmen playing at Madison Square Garden and coming off the Hawaii trip, that was the way we played. Well get better.Kentucky led 34-26 at halftime and the Wildcats opened the big lead with a 16-7 run that made it 51-37 with 12:04 to play.dddddddddddd Michigan State continued to struggle from the outside and the Wildcats led by as many as 23 points.Its the same freshmen that played against Canisius and we were down with three minutes in the half, Calipari said. Weve got a long way to go. This shows us what were capable of and now we have to build from this. You have to convince them that if we become a great defensive team.BIG PICTURE:Kentucky: The Wildcats freshman class is as loaded with talent as any recruited by Calipari and this group has size. ... Last season the Wildcats had trouble setting any kind of presence inside but with freshmen Ban Adebayo and Wenyen Gilbert grabbing 11 rebounds between them. Kentucky was able to stay on the glass with the Spartans only being outrebounded 44-40.Michigan State: The Spartans played in Honolulu on Friday and then headed across the country for this game. Michigan State will travel 13,600 miles by Nov. 29 and in a 21-day span they will face at least three Top 15 opponents. ... Michigan State wont be at full strength for a while as they wait for Gavin Schilling and Ben Carter to return from injuries.ALL ALONE:Monk was the only Wildcat to make a 3-pointer. The rest of the team was 0 for 7. Nobody on Michigan State made more than one 3.You have to give Monk credit he was 3 for 13 going in and hit some big 3s early, unguarded on the break, Izzo said.FOUL SHOOTING:Kentucky was 16 of 20 at the free throw line while the Spartans were 3 of 9.SITTING PRETTY:In the row behind the Kentucky bench were Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer Larry Brown who was Calipari boss at Kansas and Bruiser Flint, the coach who succeeded Calipari at Massachusetts. Also sitting in a good seat was New York Knicks guard Carmelo Anthony. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski went over and gave Anthony a big hug before the second game. The two were part of the last Olympic gold medals for the U.S.UP NEXT:Kentucky: The Wildcats return to Rupp Arena to face Duquesne on Sunday.Michigan State: The Spartans finally stop traveling to go home and play Mississippi Valley State on Friday.
