"I think we have a lot of young talent, that's for sure," Kendrick said. "Freddy [Galvis], obviously, had the big hit [Saturday]. And he played good defense … Cesar [Hernandez] had three hits. The bullpen, [Jake] Diekman and [Justin] De Fratus. So it's nice. It's weird to be talking about young guys, though. It feels weird. But like I say, we have some talent, for sure. And it's nice for them to go out there and get their reps and show what they have."
