Notes From The Phillies’ 7-2 Win Over Miami

Kyle KendrickThe Philadelphia Phillies snapped their two-game losing streak with 7-2 win over the Miami Marlins. Their record improves to 13-16.

  • Once again, Kyle Kendrick was the stopper. Kendrick continued his run of surprisingly superb pitching, going seven innings and allowing just two runs on seven hits. His record improves to 3-1, and his ERA stands at 2.43.
  • Domonic Brown turned in his best offensive game of the season, going 3-4 and driving in two runs. Brown hit his fourth homer of the year in the win.
  • Ryan Howard also launched his fourth bomb of the season, and also drew two walks.
  • Mike Adams and Jonathan Papelbon held the Marlins scoreless over the final two innings of the game.
  • With the team now out of the American League, Ben Revere returned to the bench in favor of John Mayberry in centerfield.
  • Michael Young went 2-4 with a double.
  • Chase Utley went 0-3, but drove in a run on a groundout.

Final Thoughts

Once again, Kyle Kendrick comes up big for this team.

The Phillies have a losing record when Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, and Roy Halladay take the mound, but some of those losses have been offset by Kendrick’s ability to go out every fifth day and perform at a high level. If the Phillies collectively continue to struggle throughout the rest of the season, Kendrick could become one of their strongest trade chips at the deadline, should he continue to pitch this well.

The other guy who really shined in this win (and has stepped his game up lately) is Domonic Brown. After going through a slump for several weeks and seeing his average fall to as low as .206, Brown has picked things up over the last couple of weeks. He has 12 hits and seven RBI’s in his last eight games, and he’s batting over .300 in that stretch. Hopefully this is a sign that the former top prospect may finally be settling in and getting comfortable against major league pitching. on Facebook

  1. Reported after the game that Kendrick signs a 3 Year – $48 Million Extension
    and D Brown also Signs a 4 Year – $38 Million Extension

  2. Why would the Phils want to trade Kendrick.. He’s been their most reliable and consistent Starting Pitcher since last July and is cheap compared to the “BIG 3” who collectively have failed to live up to expectations over the last couple of Seasons and Doc/Lee are aging and probably don’t have many more Pitches in their arms..

    • His contract expires at the end of the season, they could get what they can for him now, and if they want to resign him, they could do so in the following offseason.

      • His earning Power is goign up with each start Denny,
        If he figures in their Future Plans, wouldn’t it be smarter to lock him up now instead of waiting to the End of te Season and if he puts up a Career Year, will be a lot more expensive to sign.. He is still relatively young with no real injury/arm troubles/injuries
        GM Amaro has to figure out and soon, what the Plans are for 2014 & Beyond.. and you have to assume that Doc,Utley,Young and probably Cooch are not part of Future Plans.. Rollins is done after 2014 do whats the Plan to replace 4-5 Core PLayers moving forward…

        • But is it really wise to commit any kind of long-term money to Kyle Kendrick right now?

          As great as he’s pitched, I have all kinds of trouble believing that this is really the guy that he’s going to be from now on…I keep waiting for him to come back to Earth haha.

          • Or if you’re Kendrick, do you accept any kind of deal the Phillies might offer you, or are you confident enough in your abilities that you wait until the end of the year before considering any offers?

  3. there are only so many Met & Marlin games on the schedule
