Kyle Kendrick allowed just two runs over 6 2/3 innings and the Phillies rolled to an 8-4 victory that finished off a three-game sweep of the dreadful Washington Nationals. Led by homers from Jasyon Werth and Jimmy Rollins the Phils also took over first place in the NL East with the win as the Marlins also beat the Mets.
The win makes it 5 in a row for the hot-hitting Phils. Lets see if they can keep it up as they stroll into Albert Pujols territory for a weekend series.
Tonight: 8:15 PM from Busch Stadium in St. Louis. LHP Cole Hamels (9-6, 3.27) vs. RHP Kyle Lohse (12-3, 3.68).
