Brett Kennedy made his MLB debut on Wednesday for the San Diego Padres. Needless to say, the Milwaukee Brewers were not very welcoming to the rookie.
In the first inning, Milwaukee almost immediately went to work with consecutive singles to put runners on the corners. That’s when Brewers hitters really started to unload with back-to-back-to-back home runs.
First baseman Jesus Aguilar started things off with a mammoth three-run blast to right field to give the Brewers a 3-0 lead. Then second baseman Travis Shaw jumped in on the fun with a blast to center field, extending Milwaukee’s first-inning lead.
Before Kennedy even had a chance to compose himself, outfielder Eric Thames took the first pitch he saw and drove it over the right-center field fence.
Needless to say, it wasn’t the start of his MLB career Kennedy imagined. Meanwhile, Milwaukee’s lineup continues to prove why this team is a serious threat to win the division and be a major player in the postseason.
