SAN DIEGO — Ian Kennedy struck out 11 in what was likely his final start with San Diego and Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run homer for the Padres, who beat Milwaukee 3-1 in their home finale on Thursday.

The Padres underachieved this year, extending their postseason drought to nine seasons despite a roster overhaul that included adding stars such as Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Wil Myers, Derek Norris and James Shields. San Diego will finish with a losing record for the fifth straight season.

Kennedy (9-15) is eligible to become a free agent. He was stellar, allowing only one run and five hits in six innings, with no walks. His only mistake was allowing a leadoff homer in the sixth to pinch-hitter Shane Peterson.

Craig Kimbrel pitched the ninth for his 39th save.
