Nationals acquire Howie Kendrick from Phillies

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Howie Kendrick is excited for the chance to play for a World Series contender - even if he has to bat toward the bottom of the batting order.

Kendrick was traded from the Philadelphia Phillies to the Washington Nationals on Friday night for minor league pitcher McKenzie Mills. The Phillies will send about $1.59 million to cover most of the approximately $1.78 million Kendrick is due the rest of this season, and Philadelphia will remain responsible for Kendrick's $5 million in deferred salary.

"It's great because they're in first place and have a good chance to make the postseason," Kendrick said. "That's what we live for. Our ultimate goal as players is to win a World Series. I couldn't think of a better place to be going to."
