Phillies Vs. Dodgers, Game 3: Kyle Kendrick Tries To Pick Up His Third Straight Victory On Wednesday

The Philadelphia Phillies host the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 3 of their series on Wednesday night.

Starting Pitchers

The Phillies will have Kyle Kendrick (2-4, 4.02 ERA) on the mound while the Dodgers will counter with Chris Capuano (7-2, 2.50 ERA). Kendrick started the season 0-4 but has won his last two starts. In those two outings, Kendrick has allowed only two earned runs while striking out eight batters and walking three. Capuano is trending in the opposite direction. After beginning the season a surprising 5-0, he is just 2-2 over his last four starts. He enters the game coming off his worst start of the season in which he gave up seven hits, seven runs (four earned), four walks and only struck out three batters in a 13-3 loss to the Rockies. Capuano is 0-2 all-time against Philadelphia. Kendrick is 4-3 against the Dodgers in his career.

Player to Watch

Dodgers: Elian Herrera. Before this season, Herrera had been in the minors since 2006. With Matt Kemp out, Herrera has made the most of his opportunity to play. In 20 games, Herrera is batting .304 with two stolen bases, five doubles, eight walks and nine RBI. In the current series, Herrera is 2-8 with a double, three RBI, a walk and a stolen base.

Phillies: Juan Pierre. Pierre is just one run away from 1,000 in his career. He has scored 19 runs in 49 games for the Phillies in 2012. Pierre has eight hits and three runs scored in his last 17 at-bats. He was 0-4 at the plate yesterday.
