MLB FREE PICK: Take the under. According to latest MLB trends, Philadelphia is: 5-11 under in Kendrick's last 16 starts and 1-5 under last 6 vs. a team with a winning record. St. Louis, meanwhile, is 5-11 under 16 at home with the total set at 7.0 to 8.5 and 0-4 under in Lynn's last four Thursday starts.

Kendrick (9-6, 3.94 ERA)  has won two straight starts and is 5-1 with a 2.72 ERA against St. Louis in his career.  Lynn (11-5, 4.13 ERA) has struggled lately as well, giving up 10 runs in his last two starts. But he has pitched well against the Phillies, going 1-0 with a 3.00 ERA in two starts. He threw seven scoreless innings against the Phillies on April 20 in a 5-0 St. Louis win. The Phillies are eight games behind Atlanta for first place in the NL East. It might be time to sell as injuries to Ryan Howard and Domonic Brown have made them punchless. Brown leads the Phils with 24 home runs and 69 RBIs. Philadelphia is scoring just 3.85 runs per game against right-handed pitching and has scored just four runs over their last three games. They do send Kendrick to the mound, who is coming off one of his worst outings of the season. He pitched well against the Cardinals, including allowing two runs over six innings in a no-decision on April 21. This one is going under the total.
