Kendrick makes his final start of the season and possibly his final start in a Phillies uniform. He is a free agent after the season, and the Phillies could decide to move on without him. He hopes to make it a good one.

Buchanan continues to be a bright spot during a disappointing season for the Phillies. On Friday in Oakland, he recorded his 15th consecutive start of three earned runs or fewer, though he is just 5-5 during that span.

Koehler's quest for his elusive 10th win is going down to the wire. The right-hander will be making his 32nd, and final start, and he has been on nine wins since Aug. 17. He won't hit the 200-inning mark, but at 184 1/3, he can reach 190.
