Kendrick leads the team with a 2.41 ERA, a 1.099 WHIP. Never known for piling up the strikeouts, Kendrick has remained a healthy 6.5 since the start of last season. Meanwhile, the Phillies are 2-1 in games started by Kendrick following a loss.
It's notable that Kendrick is working with catcher Erik Kratz. As a battery, the pair have worked well this year, including Kendrick's last start where he tossed a three-hit shutout in the 4-0 victory over the Mets.
Here's how the Phillies lineup against the Marlins and Alex Sanabia:
1.) Jimmy Rollins, ss
2.) Chase Utley, 2b
3.) Michael Young, 3b
4.) Ryan Howard, 1b
5.) Delmon Young, rf
6.) Dom Brown, lf
7.) John Mayberry, cf
8.) Erik Kratz, c
9.) Kyle Kendrick, p
Only five players on the Phillies' roster have faced Sanabia and only two of those players have hits against him -- Cliff Lee and Mayberry. One of Mayberry's hits was a solo home run during the sixth inning of a game on Sept. 15, 2011.
Also: before the game the Phillies announced that Ezequiel Carrera had been claimed off waivers by Cleveland. Carrera was designated for assignment when Delmon Young was activated.
