PHILADELPHIA -- After the first inning, the results for Kyle Kendrick are completely different. [url=https://www.chinacheapjerseys.net/cedric-killings-jersey-store/]Cedric Killings Jersey Store[/url] . Ryan Howard drove in a pair of runs and Kendrick overcame a rocky opening inning to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to a 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday night. Ben Revere, who entered the day second in the NL in batting, went 3 for 4 to raise his average to .315. Chase Utley and Marlon Byrd also drove in runs for Philadelphia, which won its third in four games. Matt Adams homered and Matt Holliday drove in two runs for the Cardinals, who lost for just the second time in nine games. Kendrick (6-11) increased his first-inning ERA to 9.69 this season by allowing three early runs. He left after giving up four runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. "Its not in my head at all; its really not," Kendrick said. "I dont know. Its one of those things this year. It will be gone next year I think." Adam Wainwright (15-8) failed in his bid to become the first 16-game winner in the big leagues while continuing his August struggles. The right-hander allowed five runs, four earned, and six hits in six innings, dropping to 2-3 with a 6.49 ERA in five starts this month. "I havent been able to make pitches like I want to," Wainwright said. "Ive been talking myself blue in the face. Now I just have to go out and pitch." Wainwright looked to be in good position to earn the victory after the first inning. It was a continuing theme for Kendrick, but he settled down after his early struggles. Adams leadoff homer in the third was the right-handers only other blemish, and he finished by retiring his final eight batters. Kendrick has a 4.01 ERA in all innings other than the first this season. "You just have to battle," Kendrick said. "Im a competitor. I dont want to lose, so I just had to keep battling. Thats all you can do. Keep making pitches, keep grinding and try to keep your team in the game." Jonathan Papelbon capped 2 2-3 innings of scoreless relief by the Phillies bullpen with a 1-2-3 ninth for his 31st save in 33 opportunities. Philadelphia took the lead with four runs in the third thanks to some help from the Cardinals. Carlos Ruiz singled and Howard got a late stop sign from coach Pete Mackanin after rounding third base. Adams caught Jon Jays relay throw from centre and appeared to have an easy out, but he threw wildly to third and Howard scored on the error. The Phillies, who batted around in the inning, scored their first three runs on RBIs by Utley, Howard and Byrd. Hollidays two-run double and Jays sacrifice fly staked St. Louis to a 3-0 lead. Jay went 0 for 3, ending his 12-game hitting streak. Holliday nearly tied it in the eighth, but Byrd leaped high against the fence to catch the drive to right. TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals: C Yadier Molina (right thumb) missed his 35th straight game on Friday night. Phillies: OF John Mayberry (right wrist), on the DL since July 21, played in his third rehab game with Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Friday night. Mayberry entered Friday 2 for 7 with Lehigh Valley. UP NEXT Cardinals: RHP Shelby Miller (8-9, 4.25) pitches the second game of the three-game set at 7:05 Saturday night. Miller has allowed a team-high 17 homers and 64 walks in 139 2-3 innings. He took the loss against the Phillies on June 19 when he gave up four runs in 6 2-3 innings. Phillies: RHP David Buchanan (6-7, 4.25) makes his 14th start of the season in place of injured lefty Cliff Lee (left elbow), who is out for the season. Buchanan is 1-0 with a 1.17 ERA in one career start against the Cards. REVERES RIDE Revere is batting .373 since June 26 with multiple hits in 25 of 49 games over that stretch. "Its just been, See the ball, hit the ball, dont hit it to the defence," Revere said. CLOSE TO HR Holliday came within a few feet of his 13th homer. "He hit it real well," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "I was surprised it didnt go out." [url=https://www.chinacheapjerseys.net/ken-panfil-jersey-store/]Ken Panfil Jersey Store[/url] . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. [url=https://www.chinacheapjerseys.net/]China Jerseys For Sale[/url] . -- Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe was alert and recovering at a Denver hospital Saturday after suffering seizure-like symptoms when the teams bus pulled into the airport Friday afternoon for the flight to Kansas City. [url=https://www.chinacheapjerseys.net/peter-shorts-jersey-store/]https://www.chinacheapjerseys.net/peter-shorts-jersey-store/[/url] . At times during a solid but not spectacular season, they looked all three. Still the defending AFC champions persevered, riding their top-ranked defence and key contributions from younger players to a 12-4 record and their eighth playoff appearance since 2000, remarkable consistency in a league where change is the only constant.ST. MORITZ, Switzerland -- Ted Ligety of the United States put together two nearly flawless runs in difficult conditions to win a World Cup giant slalom on Sunday, the last mens race before the Sochi Olympics. Ligety, a two-time world champion in the event, overcame poor visibility to finish a massive 1.51 seconds faster than Marcel Hirscher of Austria in the combined time. "Its so tough when you cant see anything, it makes it so much more tiring. Im glad I was able to make it to the finish line," said Ligety, who posted the fastest time in both runs. The convincing win boosted Ligetys Olympic hopes. "Its nice to get in another good race and I hope I can carry that confidence over the next two weeks," Ligety said. Hirscher jumped from third to second, while Alexis Pinturault of France fell from second to third after both heats to finish 1.69 seconds behind Ligety. "The second run was definitely very good, but the first run, to be one and a half seconds behind, was nothing for me," Hirscher said. As fog shrouded the middle section of the course, Ligety raced to his 21st career victory and his third in a giant slalom this season. He also has a victory in a super combined this year. Ligety won the first two giant slaloms of the season, with Hirscher getting the next two. Felix Neureuther of Germany, winner of the previous giant slalom race, skipped the event to rest a painful back before the Olympics. Hirscher still stayed atop the giant slalom standings and took the lead overall as Aksel Lund Svindal of Noorway fell in the second heat. [url=https://www.chinacheapjerseys.net/]China Jerseys Store[/url]. Hirscher is now 58 points ahead of Svindal. The Austrian has a 95-point lead over Pinturault in giant slalom standings, while Ligety is five points behind the Frenchman. "It was a very difficult slope but I am pleased because I stayed on the podium," Pinturault said. Ligety explained his big margin of victory by taking a different line. "When its bumpy like this, I dont go so straight, I go a bit closer to the gates. A little mistake will cost you a lot on a course like this," Ligety said. Bode Miller of the United States hit a rut and crashed out about halfway into the first run. Miller won the giant slalom title at the 2003 World Championships, the last time men raced in St. Moritz. The 36-year-old American said he was ready for his fifth Olympics, despite Sundays mishap. "My skiing is generally pretty solid now," Miller said. "There were already big holes in some places when I went down and you cant see where they are and the coaches cant tell you where they are. The guys making it down were skiing very conservatively, trying not to crash and not to make mistakes. Ted is the only one really who skied normally. "I didnt want to be 2.5 seconds behind and so tried to ski normally. But I had big problems from the start," Miller said. Fog forced the cancellation of Saturdays downhill and threatened the giant slalom as well. The start of the second run was delayed by half an hour and there was a long break before the last 11 racers. ' ' '
