Hunter Pence had a little hitch in his giddy-up during Game 1 of today's doubleheader, which featured a Nationals' victory over a team wearing Phillies uniforms.

But manager Charlie Manuel said that Pence is well enough to play in Game 2. Manuel said Pence had some knee soreness.

Also, Manuel sounded confident that he would have room in his playoff bullpen for Kyle Kendrick, who had another solid start today. Kendrick said he has been told that he will be moving to the bullpen for the rest of the season to get ready for the playoffs.
