Things finally got underway offensively tonight in the bottom of the fifth inning, after a Ty Wigginton walk. Domonic Brown blasted his second home run of the season to deep right field for the first scoring play of the game. Later in the inning Michael Martinez scored from third on a wild pitch by opposing starter Wade LeBlanc, increasing the Phillies' lead to three runs.
Kyle Kendrick had a no-hitter going for him up until the top of the sixth inning. It was sadly broken up, but that doesn't take away from the stellar start he had tonight. He tossed a career-high eight strikeouts in the contest over seven innings, allowing just one run on two hits and three walks. 60 of his 95 total pitches were thrown for strikes. Antonio Bastardo picked up his first save of the season in the ninth, retiring the side without allowing a runner in scoring positi...

KK was great again (AP).
Behind Kyle Kendrick and Dom Brown, the Phillies inched closer to the Cardinals in the Wild Card standings with a 3-1 win over the Marlins.
KENDRICK GOES NO-NO FOR FIVE

What has gotten into Kyle Kendrick?
He has become a pleasant surprise in the Phillies starting rotation as he continues his great run with another great performance in a 3-1 victory over the Phillies last night at Citizens Bank Park.
Kendrick gave up a run and two hits against the Marlins in seven innings, and he had career-high eight strikeouts last night. At one point, he was flirting...
Kyle Kendrick, for varying reasons has been persona non grata in Philadelphia for quite some time. After getting off to a solid major league start in 2007, Kendrick was bounced to the minors in 2009. In 2010 he competed for a job in the Phillies starting rotation, only to be thrown into the bullpen. Same for 2011, aside from some spot starts here and there.
All the while Kendrick...
To say there is a difference in Kyle Kendrick between June and now would be an understatement.

Following last night's doubleheader sweep, the Phillies sit just six games behind in the NL Wild Card race. Entering tonight's game, they are tied with the Brewers in the standings, both sporting 69-71 records. If the Phillies can get a jump on the Marlins tonight, they could be as far as 5 games out of the Wild Card standings. With 22 games left in the season, there'...
Is it safe to call Kyle Kendrick an Ace yet? Because he's sure as hell pitching like one. The surging Phils are riding on a lot of energy right now after a clean sweep of the Rockies, and they were looking to carry that over into this Marlins series at home.
On the Kyle Kendrick front, there isn't much to report here other than a no-hitter through five innings. You know...
With Kyle Kendrick continuing a run from nowhere and the Cardinals and (heh heh) Braves not exactly showing exceptional strength at the close, I'm left with this small little moment of madness: the Phillies are a game under .500 at 70-71, and 5.5 games out of the wild card. Despite being 17 games back in the division. They have won five in a row, 8 of their last 10, and they...

Kyle Kendrick is the 4-slot hurler for the Philadelphia Phillies, if they reach the NLDS. That stated, have you realized what’s going on yet? Remember, the poll for Masked September is here, if you haven’t voted yet.
