After what can only be described as a frustrating win (shoulda been a blowout, but they taxed the bullpen and barely held on at the end), the Phillies send the struggling Kyle Kendrick to the mound to face the talented Chris Volstad.

Nonetheless, the Phillies enter the game 1 1/2 games behind the Mets (2 in the loss column) in the NL East, and 3 games behind Milwaukee for the Wild Card, with a four-game series in Philadelphia looming later this week.

Rollins, Howard, and Werth, with some help from the strangely enigmatic Chase Utley, have been running this offense for the past couple of weeks. Imagine how it'd feel if everyone clicked at once. They might need an onslaught of runs; I can't see Kendrick pitching a gem tonight.
