D-backs' Kennedy gets himself into 'Trouble'

D-backs' Kennedy gets unusual walk-up music after leaving choice to team president's daughter.

Though the song didn't help Kennedy at the plate (he went 0 for 3), it likely isn't going anywhere given Kennedy's performance in the D-backs' 6-2 Opening Day win over the Cardinals. He went seven innings and allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out seven to earn his first Opening Day win in three straight tries.

Kennedy strolled to the batter's box with an equally unconventional tune most of last season -- "What Makes You Beautiful" by English boy band One Direction. No word if that was Kylie's pick, too.
