ATLANTA (AP) -- Ryan Howard homered, Kyle Kendrick won consecutive starts for the first time in 11 months and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 5-2 on Tuesday night.

The Phillies, winners of two straight and six of eight, got a solid start from Kendrick (3-6), who had gone 2-11 in his previous 20 starts since last Aug. 11.

Kendrick allowed six hits and two runs with one walk and six strikeouts in seven innings.

Not since he beat Washington last July 11 and won at the New York Mets last July 19 had Kendrick won two straight starts. The right-hander was coming off a 7-3 victory last week against San Diego.

Atlanta has lost seven of 11 and 13 of 21.
