Kendrick keeps rolling, Phils in position to sweep Giants





Kyle Kendrick kept rolling last night with another win vs. the San Francisco Giants. The 6-2 win gave Kyle his 4th victory of the year so far.

The offense picked up some steam after appearing lifeless at home just a few days ago, Ryan Howard and Chase Utley combined to go 5-8 with 4 RBI in the game. Howard added his 6th HR of the year that came in the 9th inning, and Chase Utley hit is 7th HR of the season in the 5th inning.

Tim Lincecum gave up 5 ER over 7.0 IP and 9 H to get the loss for the Giants, 'The Freak' as the SF fans call him looked good early but got in trouble several times and the Phillies capitalized on it.

Laynce Nix went 2-3 from the plate with in right field for this game, and Dom Brown went 0-5 with 2 SO in the game that was played at the chilly AT&T Park.

The Phils have an afternoon game at 3:45 PM Eastern time today, 12:45 PM in San Francisco as Barry Zito (3-1) goes against Jonathan Pettibone (2-0).

No word yet about Roy Halladay, if anyone knows something, they haven't commented on it yet.
