Kendrick pitches Phils past Brewers on rainy day

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Kyle Kendrick pitched three-hit ball for eight innings and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 8-0 Sunday after waiting out a rare rain delay at Miller Park.

The game was held up for 7 minutes when showers popped up in the first inning with the retractable roof still open. It takes about 10 minutes for the roof to fully shut, and the game was delayed with the Brewers batting in the bottom half when the rain became harder. Most of the Phillies stayed on the field.

Kendrick (6-9) struck out seven and walked one. In his previous start, he threw seven impressive innings and beat Miami 1-0.

Dominic Brown drove in four runs and scored twice. Michael Martinez, who began the day hitting .130, homered off Randy Wolf (3-10).
