Know Your Foe #11: Philadelphia Phillies face Colorado Rockies for first time since 2009 NLDS

Philadelphia Phillies (19-12, 1st place NL East)

Monday-Wednesday: 3-game series @ Coors Field

Rockies' 2009 Record vs. Phillies: 2-4 regular season record, 1-3 postseason record

Phillies' Recent Results: 3-1 series victory over the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-1 series victory over the Atlanta Braves

The Rockies' longest winning streak this season has been three games when they beat the Padres on April and then won the first two games against the Mets at Coors. Two two-game winning streaks have come since, but a win followed by a loss has been the most common pattern for the last week. Let's hope things change for the better this week when the Rockies host the Phillies.

Kendrick dominated the Cardinals back on May 5 to pick up his first win of the season (7 IP, 0 ER), but if they can get to him early the Rockies should be on the way to victory.
