Kyle Kendrick (1-1, 6.14 ERA) and Roy Oswalt (0-3, 9.00) lead their teams to battle tonight at 7:05 p.m. at Citizens Bank Park. Jimmy Rollins remains on the sidelines.
Preview: Tonight's game features two right-handers at interesting points in their career. Kendrick is trying to avoid a sophomore slump and prove he’s for real. Oswalt is trying to disprove critics who argue that his career has reached its apex and it’s all downhill from here. They’re both trying to rebound from terrible starts. Kendrick walked a career high six in just 2 1-3 innings. Oswalt was uncharacteristically bombarded for four home runs and eight runs against the Marlins.
Feliz bats second: Charlie Manuel’s two-hole hitter hokey pokey continues, as Pedro Feliz sticks his right foot in tonight.
