    Good news and bad news for Kyle Kendrick Wednesday.

    First the good news:

    He pitched a scoreless inning to help the Phils to a 4-3 win over the Brewers.

    Oh yeah, and the five guys who allegedly swiped a bunch of things including Kendrick's World Series ring from his Washington State home were under arrest, according to Mount Vernon Police Lt. Chris Cammock.

    But before Kendrick goes out and locks away his bling in a huge safe someway, he should hear the bad news.

    His W.S. ring is nowhere to be found.

    At least the cops got Kendrick, a Mount Vernon native, his National League championship ring back.

    It wasn’t clear how police found the NLCS ring but they did tell us that over the past week or so (starting April 12) they started to arrest alleged burglars with the final arrests coming Tuesday night.

    Mount Vernon is located about an hour north of Seattle.

    The burglars allegedly broke through a locked door, managed to avoid tripping the alarm and spent a good amount of time in the home as they snatched up home electronics, memorabilia and one very precious ring, cops said.

    Besides Kendrick’s engraved 3.84-karat ring 2008 World Series ring, the burglars allegedly grabbed other Kendrick baseball mementos and a framed autographed jersey from former Mariners star Ken Griffey Jr.

    It wasn’t clear if they got back the Griffey jersey.

    No names of the alleged burglars were released as they have yet to be charged, police said.
