Surging Phillies Top Marlins For 5th Straight Win

Kyle Kendrick struck out a career-high eight over seven strong innings to lead the surging Philadelphia Phillies to their fifth straight win, 3-1 over the Miami Marlins on Monday night.

Staked to a 3-0 lead, Kendrick (9-10) took a no-hitter into the sixth before Rob Brantly’s leadoff single. The right-hander escaped a bases-loaded jam when he struck out Giancarlo Stanton on a changeup.

Often overlooked on a staff that includes Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee, Kendrick has been a huge reason why the Phillies (70-71) are on a late push to get into the NL wild-card race. He’s won five of his last six starts and has allowed two earned runs or less in each of his past six.
