Kyle Kendrick pitched the best game of his career, throwing a three-hitter and getting home-run help from Ryan Howard to lead the Philadelphia Phillies over the New York Mets 4-0 Friday night. The Phillies ended their three-game skid and dropped the Mets under .500 for the first time this season. Kendrick (2-1) scattered three singles and didn't permit a runner beyond second base. Philadelphia broke a scoreless tie in the sixth inning when Michael Young hit an RBI single and Howard followed with a long three-run homer.
