Phillies Vs. Cardinals Final Score: Kyle Kendrick Hurls Complete Game Shutout, Philadelphia Wins 4-0

The St. Louis Cardinals (25-22) continued their struggles as the Philadelphia Phillies (25-23) handed the Cards a 4-0 loss -- their 11th loss in their last 16 games.

SP Kyle Kendrick (W, 1-4) managed to throw a complete game shutout against the Cards lineup, allowing only 6 singles and 1 double, while striking out 4 batters. The Phillies lineup also accrued 7 hits, but their 4 doubles made a critical difference.

SP Jaime Garcia (L, 2-3) pitched six frames for the Cards, but allowed two-bag hits to C Brian Schneider, CF Shane Victorino, 3B Placido Polanco and LF John Mayberry -- hits that ultimately led to 4 ER. Garcia also struck out 6 and walked 2, but ultimately could not lead the Cardinals to a win. RP Chuckie Fick made his major league debut on the night, pitching the ninth inning while allowing only a single in an otherwise quiet outing.

The Cards will look to fend off the sweep on Sunday at 1:15 p.m. CDT.
