Kendrick, Phillies get help from overturned call

PHILADELPHIA -- Kyle Kendrick entered his final home start of the season with hopes of making it one to remember, considering it might be his last as a Phillie overall.

The right-hander, whose contract expires at the end of the season, got some help from a replay review with two outs in the top of the third, when Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg won a challenge in which Miami left fielder Christian Yelich was originally called safe at second while trying to swipe the bag.

With Marlins second baseman Donovan Solano batting, catcher Wil Nieves fired to second baseman Chase Utley on Yelich's steal attempt. Sandberg immediately came out of the dugout to argue the safe call, and after a 53-second review, replay clearly showed that Utley tagged Yelich before he reached the base.

The call on the field was overturned, ending the inning.
