Kendrick was no match for the Dodgers, but good results elsewhere so the lead is still two games.
Word is that Tom Gordon is done for the season. He last pitched on July 5th.*
Tonight Cole Hamels looks to get his first win since early July. He faces Clayton Kershaw, a rookie making his 13th start, and his last 3 starts have been good so his ERA has dropped from the 5's down to 3.71 coming in.

*Spoiler: He'd pitch in 3 games for Arizona in 2009 before hanging them up, 2 scoreless outings and one bad one, for an ERA of 21.something
