Kendrick out after three-plus innings

Kyle Kendrick struggled today in his start against the Atlanta Braves, allowing six runs on 10 hits in three-plus innings against the Braves. He was lifted from the game after allowing four hits without recording an out in the fourth. One of those hits was a single by Braves pitcher Jo Jo Reyes, who doubled earlier in the game. He also gave up a home run to Clint Sammons.


Here are some notable performances from the simulated game held earlier today:

Brett Myers: 5 innings, 2 hits, 7 strikeouts, 1 hit by pitch

Chan Ho Park: 2 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 3 K, 2 HBP, 1 HR

Brad Lidge: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 R, 1 K

Chad Durbin: 1 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 K

Chris Coste: 1-2, HBP, HR (off Park)

Pedro Feliz: 1-2, HBP, 2 assists

Lidge's slider was clicking, as was Myers' cutter. Durbin reported no problems with his hamstring.
