This wasn't even one of those lucky-good starts for Kendrick. The dude was flat-out dealing, striking out a career high seven Rockies batters and walking two, allowing four base hits and throwing 117 pitches. David Herndon pitched a perfect ninth to close the game out.
The Phillies scored two runs in the top of the first off Rockies starter Aaron Cook, one on an RBI groundout from Chase Utley, the second on an RBI double by Hunter Pence. The Phillies would score two more in the fourth on Ryan Howard's first home run and a sacrifice fly from Brian Schneider. Ryan Howard would cap off the night's scoring with a solo home run in the top of the eighth.
