The Phillies' Dynamic Duo

When Kyle Kendrick takes the mound Friday night against the Nationals, here's hoping Brian Schneider is just 60 feet, six inches away.

Those two have constituted the Phillies' starting battery in 10 starts over the last two seasons. In those games, Kendrick is 8-2, with a 1.25 ERA and is holding opponents to a .197 batting average. In his other 22 starts, Kendrick is 1-10, 5.12, .296.

Here are Kendrick's numbers in each of those starts and his totals by catcher in starts the last two seasons:
