Kendrick escaped a two-out jam in the sixth, retiring Josh Rutledge on a foul pop to leave runners at second and third.

Howard connected in the sixth, sending a drive into the right-center stands for his eighth homer and a 4-0 lead. Utley hit an RBI double in the seventh and Howard followed with a two-run single.

“I didn’t execute well to Howard,” Chacin said.

Pinch-hitter John Mayberry Jr. capped the scoring outburst with a two-run shot.
