PHILADELPHIA — After a span of low-scoring, good pitching efforts, the Phillies offense bailed out a weak night on the hill to keep the team rolling.

On a night where Roy Halladay and the bullpen weren’t at their best, the offense exploded for nine runs as the Phillies beat the Marlins, 9-7, to expand their winning streak to six games. With the Cardinals game currently going on, the Phillies are now 4.5 games out of the second Wild Card spot.

The win also pulled them to .500 for the first time since June 4 and have won 14 of their last 18 games.

Philadelphia got off to a hot start in the 1st inning. They put up three runs, giving Halladay an early cushion for his six-plus-inning outing.

Phillies Win Fifth Straight On Arm of Kendrick

Phillies 3, Marlins 1
WP – Kyle Kendrick (9-10, 3.83)
LP – Wade Leblanc (2-4, 2.95)
SV – Antonio Bastardo (1)

PHILADELPHIA — The Phillies are going streaking.

Kyle Kendrick took a no-hitter into the 6th inning and the offense produced just enough in the Phillies 3-1 win over the Marlins, Monday night.

Kendrick lasted seven innings, allowing a run on two hits and three walks, striking out a career-high-tying eight. Antonio Bastardo pitched in the save situation, his first of the season while Jonathan Papelbon was unavailable.

In the 5th, Domonic Brown hit a two-run homer and Michael Martinez scored on a passed ball after doubling, giving the Phillies a 3-0 lead.

In the top of the 6th, Kendrick lost his no-hit bid with Rob Brantly’s lead-off single.

2B: Utley (12), Martinez (1). HR: Brown (2).
