Ian Kennedy struck out 12 batters en route to a 1-0 win.
Kennedy had 12 strikeouts and one hit allowed in eight innings, and he won his 20th game of the season in the process. For the Pirates, Jeff Karstens made his last start of the season (the Bucs announced before the game that he won't pitch anymore) and did well, but he gave up a solo home run to Justin Upton in the sixth that proved to be the difference.
