Ye of little faith, the Phils won that game last night against the Marlins. Put away all those nasty stats and start talking powering through. It was a spark that was seen from the team.
Kendrick pitched steady and strong for 6 full innings and kept the Marlins to only 2 unearned runs due to throwing error by himself. Good thing about that, Kendrick didn’t crumble after the error and powered through.
Now, here’s how the Phils scored their 3 runs. Top of the 4th, Howard singles followed by a triple by Ibanez to score Howard. Howard chugged from 1st to home with amazing strength and stamina. In the 5th, Utley makes a huge steal to second, Howard singles and Utley scores to tie the game. In 7th,with runners on first and second, Victorino makes bold move to steal third . Utley then groudouts enabling Vic to score which then gives them the lead.
Kendrick pitches through 6 innings followed by Durbin, Baez with Contreras to close.
Phils WIN 3-2
Polanco sat out of the game last night due to his sore elbow. Werth also sits out 😦
Werth does come in the game in the 8th to pitch hit in the 9 spot and then plays RF in the 9th inning
