The Phillies were behind for beginning of the game yesterday and it stayed that way in a loss to the Diamondbacks. Kyle Kendrick just lasted four innings on the mound to take the loss. Tonight the Phillies will turn to Roy Halladay who has lost four of his last five decisions. Halladay is having a very uncharacteristic season for him pitching to a 4.33 ERA in just 89 innings of work.
The Diamondbacks are in contention in the AL West and won for the fourth time in a row on Friday. They got a good effort from Ian Kennedy who won his fourth start in a row running his record to 10-8. Today they will send Joe Saunders to the mound who has lost three of his last four decisions. Overall however Saunders is pitching to a 3.62 ERA in 107 innings of work.
Philadelphia is 4-1 in their last five games as a favorite, 10-26 in their last 36 games against a team with a winning record, and 1-4 in Halladay’s last five home starts. Arizona is 6-1 in their last seven games overall, 8-3 in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record, and 0-6 in Saunders’ last six starts as an underdog. Arizona is 2-9 in their last 11 games in Philadelphia.
