Philadelphia Phillies (7-11) vs St. Louis Cardinals (10-7) Kyle Kendrick (1-1, 3.38) vs Jake Westbrook (1-1, 0.00) TIME: 8:00, Citizens Bank Park TV: ESPN Weather: 52, mostly cloudy Media: Twitter and Facebook A day after being shutout and managing only three hits against the Cardinals, the Phillies are tasked with solving Jake Westbrook tonight, who has yet to give up an earned run in 15.2 innings this season.  The Phils counter with fellow sinker baller Kyle Kendrick, who is also off to a solid start in 2013 with an ERA of 3.38. Westbrook’s sparkling statistics are a little misleading; the 35-year-old has allowed 10 walks in his two starts and was fortunate to have his third start against the Pirates, in which he gave up four runs in the first two innings, washed out due to rain.  Meanwhile, the Phillies are 27th in baseball in walks, with only 39 through 18 games.  Westbrook’s WHIP of 1.34 is just a tad under his career mark of 1.39.  His career ERA, however, is 4.26… much higher...
