|Kendrick Dazzles; Phillies Shut Out Cardinals
|PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Kyle Kendrick threw seven impressive innings, Placido Polanco hit a two-run homer and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 Wednesday night.
In a return to normalcy, no fans ran onto the field at Citizens Bank Park after consecutive games were marred by unruly behavior.
A crowd of 44,261 was the 54th straight sellout in Philadelphia. Everyone stayed in the stands for a change. Some were startled when a ball girl dashed onto the field during a pitching change in the eighth before quickly realizing she was simply going to get reliever Dennys Reyes' jacket from the bullpen.
