Not quite a complete game shutout, but Cole Hamels still dominated in the Phillies 4-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers.  Their win today puts them in position to split series tomorrow. ANOTHER SOLID PERFORMANCE FROM HAMELS -Aramis Ramirez led off the second inning with a home run.  In the same inning, the Brewers would get a runner in scoring position with one out.  Hamels was able to escape the jam with a little help from a baserunning mistake and the defense.  Hamels settled down and would remain in cruise control until the eighth inning. -Cole Hamels finished the night after 7.2 innings.  He allowed three runs on eight hits and a walk.  His changeup was filthy, as he struck out ten in his 14th win. -For the twentieth time in his career, Hamels reached double digits in strikeouts. -Hamels’ earned run average remains under three for the year, currently standing at 2.94.  He continues to be the Phillies’ best pitcher this season.  If there is any bright side to this 2012 seas...

Cole Hamels, Philadelphia Phillies The Phillies have found their secret to success. Unfortunately, they only get to put their plan in action every fifth day. The secret? Run Cole Hamels out to pitch.

Hamels shuts down Brewers, Phillies win 4-3

MILWAUKEE -- In an otherwise disappointing season, Cole Hamels has been one of the few bright spots for the Philadelphia Phillies.

He continued his strong season Saturday, striking...

Phillies rotation still respected leaguewide

MILWAUKEE When Cliff Lee signed with the Philadelphia Phillies in December2010, putting the finishing brush strokes on a piece de resistance of a pitching rotation, the baseball world took notice.

Final: Phillies 8, Brewers 0. WP: Kyle Kendrick (6-9, 4.20 ERA) LP: Randy Wolf (3-10, 5.69 ERA).
