Game 58 - Monday Night, June 3rd in Philadelphia
Record - 28-30
One Sentence Summary: Led by Domonic Brown's bat (again) and Kyle Kendrick's fine pitching performance, the Phillies easily handled the Marlins by a score of 7-2.
What It Means: It seems like it's all Brown, all the time at The Phillies Room! He became the first Phillie to hit nine home runs in a ten-game stretch since Bobby Abreu did it in May 2005.
What Went Right: The recently named Player of the Month for May had the big blast in this game with a two-run home run in the sixth. It was Brown's 17th, extending his league lead. Erik Kratz homered an inning earlier for his fifth of the year.
Kendrick threw his second complete game of the season, and the fourth of his career. He allowed only six hits while striking out five on the way to his sixth win of 2013.

Team Issue #26
I don't want Kendrick to feel left out if he's reading this blog (highly doubtful, but you never know), so I'll also present the next step in his baseball card evolution. Kendrick spent the bulk of the 2005 season back with the Rookie-A Batavia Muckdogs, earning brief promotions to both the Lakewood BlueClaws and the Clearwater Threshers. The lone 2005 card I have for Kendrick is from the Batavia team set.
