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

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 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 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.
