Kendrick rebounds with solid start vs. Cubs
PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies right-hander Kyle Kendrick had nowhere to go but up on Sunday at Citizens Bank Park.

Kendrick suffered through one of the Phillies' worst starts in recent memory last week in Arizona, where he allowed 11 hits and seven runs in just three innings in a 9-5 loss to the Diamondbacks at Chase Field. But Kendrick allowed five hits, three runs (two earned runs), one walk and matched a career high with seven strikeouts in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Chicago Cubs.

Kendrick had to work through some jams early, but he minimized the damage.

"You never want to have games like that," Kendrick said of his previous start. "Those happen to everybody, but I was excited to get back out there as soon as possible. I was excited to pitch at home. I felt pretty good today. I just wanted to give us a chance to win. That's all I can do."
