Phillies Pregame – 5/7, 9:40 PM EDT

The Game: Philadelphia Phillies vs. Arizona Diamondbacks

The Matchup: Kyle Kendrick (6 GS, 2-2, 5.01, 16 SO, 11 BB, 4 HR, 1.55 WHIP) vs. Micah Owings (6 GS, 4-1, 4.42, 30 SO, 12 BB, 6 HR, 1.20 WHIP)

The Story: Kyle Kendrick on the mound as the Phillies look to rebound from last night’s frustrating loss against the Diamondbacks and Randy Johnson.  With any luck, Kendrick will be better than Adam Eaton was last night, walking the Big Unit on FOUR PITCHES!  Of the walk, Eaton said after the game, “It’s pretty pathetic.”  Pathetic indeed.  Eaton started well, but he may be regressing to 2007 form…

The Phils bats weren’t silent last night, but they didn’t get the job done.  They left seven men on base, including men on first and third in the 9th.  The Phils could use this game, as they are going up against surefire Brandon Webb tomorrow.  He’s 7-0 with a 2.49 ERA, and yes, you read that correctly.

Phils are gonna need some luck in the next couple days.  All hands on deck!

Stat of the Day: Kyle Kendrick’s opponents’ batting average is .293. Oy…
