Philadelphia Phillies (50-56) vs San Francisco Giants (46-59) Kyle Kendrick  (9-7, 3.96 ERA) vs Chad Gaudin (4-2, 2.77 ERA) TIME: 7:05 Citizens Bank Park TV: Comcast SportsNet Weather: 86, sunny Media: Twitter and Facebook The Phillies ended their eight game losing streak on Tuesday with a 7-3 win over the Giants, and tonight they will have a crack at winning their first series since before the All-Star break. They will do so with Kyle Kendrick on the hill. Kendrick has been one of the Phillies most consistent starters this season, and despite earning a loss, he pitched well his last time out against St. Louis. The righty tossed six innings and allowed just three runs on five hits, marking his 15th quality start this year. Kendrick did face the Giants back on May 7, and earned a win after holding them to two runs over seven innings. The Phillies will be facing Chad Gaudin, who they have faced several times but have never seen as a starter. In nine relief appearances against the Phillies he has held them to three runs over 13 1/3 innings (2.03 ERA), and all three runs came in the same outing. He worked two scoreless frames against the Phillies earlier this year. Michael Young is the only Phillies player with any success against Gaudin, and he has done it over a large sample size. Young has seen Gaudin 22 times, and is hitting .455 with three doubles, three home runs and seven RBI against him. No other Phillie with more than three at bats against him has ever gotten more than one hit. Lineup: Rollins SS, M. Young 1B, Utley 2B, D. Young RF, Ruf LF, Asche 3B, Mayberry CF, Ruiz C, Kendrick P Gameday Beer: Shocktop Belgian White With summer in full swing, it’s a great time to crack open a true summer brew with a Shocktop Belgian White. This wheat ale is brewed with lemon, lime and orange peels to give it a refreshing taste and subtly sour finish. It’s the perfect beer for relaxing and watching the ballgame whether you are at the bar, relaxing at home or hanging out down the shore.
