Kyle Kendrick SP PHI 3 Days

Kendrick (9-13) took the loss Thursday in San Diego, allowing six hits, five walks and three runs in five innings. He struck out two.

While Kendrick turns in a solid start here and there, poor outings like this are all too common. His stats this year are pretty much in line with his career numbers, which are those of a subpar pitcher. And yet the Phillies have been loyally rolling him out there since 2007.

Kendrick struggled in a losing effort Monday, allowing five runs in seven innings against the Pirates.

Kendrick has done a good job giving the Phillies length in his starts, but the results haven't been perfect. The righty has allowed at least four runs in five of his last six starts. Kendrick will try to limit the damage against him this weekend in a start against the Marlins.

Kendrick shut out the Braves on Tuesday, tossing seven innings of three-hit ball. He also walked two and fanned four in the win.

Sometimes having trouble finding the zone can work to a pitcher's benefit, as was the case with Kendrick in this one as he managed less than half of his pitches (55-of-101) for strikes, while only getting ahead of batters with 12-of-26 first-pitch strikes. Nonetheless, he got the job done and now owns an 8-11 record with a 4.77 ERA and 1.35 WHIP through 28 starts (173.2 innings) this season.

Kendrick struck out four and walked one while giving up four runs on seven hits over six innings a winning effort Wednesday.

The victory improved Kendrick's record to 7-11 on the season, but he remains a very risky option for streaming purposes as he's been one of the least valuable starting pitchers in the league over the past calendar year. Kendrick will make his next start on the road Tuesday against the Braves.

Kendrick allowed four runs on eight hits, walking one and striking out four over 6.1 innings of a 4-3 win against the Cardinals on Friday night.

Kendrick (6-11, 4.93) survived yet another debacle in the first inning (three runs) but settled down and lasted long enough for his mates to rally. He is notoriously bad in the first inning (a 9.69 ERA in the first inning over 26 starts) and could be a serviceable starter if he could overcome that weakness. He'll hope for a better beginning against the Nationals in Philadelphia next time out.

Kendrick allowed four runs, three of which were earned, over five innings Saturday against the Giants. He struck out one and walked two.

Kendrick entered the sixth inning with a 5-1 lead, but failed to retire any of the three batters he faced. He wasn't helped out by his defense, as a catchable pop fly and a poor throw on the same play failed to record one easy out. He was then pulled after a Mike Morse run-scoring double.

Kendrick struggled Sunday against the Mets, giving up 10 hits and six runs (five earned) while walking three and striking out one in five innings, though he didn't factor into the decision.

Kendrick had control issues throughout Sunday's start and gave up back-to-back homers to Lucas Duda and Travis d'Arnaud to lead off the top of the fifth inning. Kendrick, who owns a 4.88 ERA, will be hoping for a more effective outing on Saturday in San Francisco.

Kendrick was efficient Tuesday, giving up one run on five hits while walking one and fanning three in seven innings of a no-decision against the Astros. He also tossed 18-of-25 first-pitch strikes.

This was one of Kendrick's better outings of the season, and the first time he's allowed one run or less since June 12 against the Padres (10 starts prior). Unfortunately for owners hoping for a win, Kendrick really didn't come close after giving up a game-tying single to Jon Singleton in the seventh, as the Phils marched out seven pitchers after him in a 15-inning marathon victory. He now owns a 4.74 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP in 144.1 innings and will face the Mets in his next start Sunday.

Kyle Kendrick picked up his fifth victory of the season on Friday, allowing three runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings against the Diamondbacks.

Kendrick fanned five on the evening while issuing just one free pass. He was staked to an early six-run lead and cruised through the first five frames before running into trouble in the sixth inning. He left three runners on base, who immediately trotted home when Antonio Bastardo surrendered a grand slam upon entering the game in relief. Kendrick will draw the the Mets in New York his next time out on Wednesday.
