Among the pitchers selected ahead of Ian Kennedy in an average live draft in ESPN Fantasy Baseball? How about Ryan Dempster (10-13, 4.63 ERA), Ricky Nolasco (10-11, 4.46 ERA) and Brett Myers (6-13, 4.39 ERA)? Among the NL starters who beat Kennedy to 20 wins? That would be nobody. Kennedy's gem in a 1-0 win against the Pirates makes him the first to 20 wins, but does it make him the Cy Young favorite? Vote: MVP and Cy Young picks?

Ian Kennedy or Justin Upton?

Kennedy struck out 12 in eight shutout innings, but Monday's game might still be going if Justin Upton hadn't homered for the game's lone run.
