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.

Kyle Kendrick (8-10, 3.96 ERA) will take on lefty Wade LeBlanc (2-3, 2.72 ERA) in tonight's series opener. Kyle Kendrick's last start didn't go exactly as planned. Headed into Tuesday's matchup against the Reds, Kendrick had won four straight decisions as well as posting a 1.23 ERA in as many starts. It was just one of those games where a single run made the difference. Kendrick tossed five scoreless innings before surrendering a two-run shot to Jay Bruce.

An Improving Kendrick Helping Phillies Stay In Hunt

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...

Kendrick Masterful Once Again, Phillies Win Fifth Straight, 3-1

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...

Could the Phillies still make the playoffs?

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...
