Jeremy Hefner hopes for a little run support on Wednesday when the New York Mets conclude a three-game set with the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.
Hefner was terrific in his season debut on Friday against Miami, but the Mets couldn't score while he was in the game and absorbed the loss, despite surrendering just a run and five hits in six innings.
"I was just hoping to keep them close, and eventually we did come back," Hefner said. "We just ran out of outs."
Kyle Kendrick takes the hill for the Phillies in Wednesday's finale trying to erase a disappointing first outing. Kendrick cruised through the first 4 1/3 innings of that start against the Kansas City Royals, but then the wheels fell off.
When it was all said and done, Kendrick had been charged with five runs in 5 2/3 innings, as seven of the final 11 batters he faced reached base and exited with the bases full.
