NEW YORK, April 26 (UPI) -- Kyle Kendrick allowed three hits and turned in the second shutout of his 7-year career Friday, carrying the Philadelphia Phillies past the New York Mets 4-0.

Kendrick (2-1) struck out five and walked one while throwing 107 pitches. His only other shutout came last season, during which he went 11-12 for the Phillies.

The game was scoreless through five innings, but Philadelphia broke things open with a four-run sixth.

Michael Young singled in the first run of the inning and Ryan Howard hit a three-run homer off starter Dillon Gee (1-4). Gee gave up seven hits and struck out four in six innings.

The Mets had no more than one base runner in any inning while losing their second in a row. Philadelphia ended a three-game skid.
