Marlins outlast Phillies in ugly game

July 7 Camden Courier-Post:

Kyle Kendrick stood in front of his locker, bit his lip and searched for the right words that might express his frustration without undermining his manager.  The words never came.  Kendrick was pulled after just 81 pitches and five innings, and the Phillies makeshift bullpen promptly blew the lead and, eventually, the game.  Domonic Brown walked from third base to the visitor’s dugout after what appeared to be a leadoff triple in the sixth. Like Kendrick, he offered few words.

Victorino’s return unclear; Polanco to see specialist

July 7 CSN Philly:

Dom Brown stood there at third base on Wednesday night at Sun Life Stadium waiting for a pitch to be thrown. It would only be then that he could breathe a sigh of relief of the knowledge that he got away with something.  The pitch never came.  Instead, Marlins reliever Mike Dunn walked to the back of the mound and lobbed the ball to shortstop Hanley Ramirez at the second base bag. Waiting for the formality of the appeal to pass, umpire Kerwin Danley raised his right hand into the air to signify that Brown was the first out of the sixth inning.

Polanco’s pain continues

July 7 Camden Courier-Post:

Placido Polanco can play, he insists. But it’s probably better that he doesn’t.  Polanco’s back should get better, he said. But for the past few weeks, it’s only gotten worse.  He plans to take his place at third base to start the All-Star Game on Tuesday, but first Polanco will meet with a back specialist to seek help with a pinched nerve that has plagued him at the plate and in the field for more than a month.
