Kendrick did not pitch well in his last outing against the Red Sox, giving up six runs in only three innings. Kendrick usually gets good run support in his starts though as the Phillies have won 10 of his last 12 starts.
Smith has pitched well in most games this season but has very little to show for it. He has already received five no decisions this season and is 4-5 overall despite an ERA of 3.51. He has gone five innings in two straight starts allowing just one run each time.
