Kyle Kendrick pitched eight strong innings, allowing just four hits in the longest start of his career, to help the Philadelphia Phillies end a season-long six-game losing streak with a 4-0 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday night. Chase Utley, batting second for the first time this season, snapped out of a slump with a 4-for-5 performance as the first-place Phillies finally gained ground in the NL East for the first time in nearly two weeks.
