Cliff Lee is hurt by another home run as the Phils are beaten by the Cards, 4-1.
The Phils took the lead in the first as, with runners on the corners, and with one man out, Ryan Howard hits an RBI force out, 4-6, as Chase Utley, who had earlier reached base with a single, is wiped out at second base for the inning’s second out, but taking Cards’ shortstop Rafael Furcal out of the play, allowing Dom Brown, who had earlier walked, then stopped at third base on Utley’s single, to score, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead. The Cards would take the lead in the sixth as, with two men on, and with nobody out, Matt Holliday hits a three-run blast, his twenty-second home run of the season, knocking in Jon Jay, who had started the inning off with a single, then stopped at third base on Allen Craig’s double, and Craig, who had just doubled, giving the Cards a 3-1 lead. The Cards added to their lead in the eighth as, with runners on the corners, and with nobody out, Carlos Beltran hits an RBI single, ...

Cole Hamels was stellar. He tossed his second straight complete game shutout, this time against yet another NL East opponent in the Marlins. He gave up six hits, one walk, and punched out five. Here’s his line: 9.0 IP/6 H/0 R/0 ER/1 BB/5 K. Here are some other story lines from tonight’s game:

With Roy Halladay on the bump, the Philadelphia Phillies don’t have many remaining outs to get. That stated, Rube Amaro has a collection of green studs in the ‘pen and at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. How many will make the grade?

Outfielder Nate Schierholtz, who was acquired by the Phillies in a trading-deadline deal that sent Hunter Pence to the Giants, was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a fractured right big toe. It's unclear whether Schierholtz's injury will require surgery, but if it does, his season may be over. Schierholtz sustained the injury in his only at-bat on Sunday. He was...

Lance Lynn may not be a big-name pitcher, but he is having himself a solid year. He averages a strikeout per inning. Lynn has been a little inconsistent lately, however. He has...
With Albert Pujols in California with the Angels and Lance Berkman on the disabled list with more knee problems, the St. Louis Cardinals have to get consistent production from Allen Craig during the final six weeks of the season if they want a shot at a postseason berth.
Craig has played remarkably when he’s been in the lineup. He’s hitting .294 with 17 homeruns and 59 RBIs...
Cole Hamels showed in his most recent outing why the Philadelphia Phillies decided to invest in him while dealing away others during a disappointing campaign.
His performances against the Miami Marlins this season haven't gone nearly as well.
The left-hander looks to help end Philadelphia's five-game losing streak to the Marlins in the opener of a three-game series Monday...
MIAMI (AP) -- Cole Hamels pitched his second consecutive shutout for the Philadelphia Phillies in a 4-0 win over the Miami Marlins on Monday night.
Hamels, coming off a five-hitter against Atlanta last Tuesday, scattered seven hits and struck out five in his sixth career shutout and 12th complete game. He walked one and threw 85 of 113 pitches for strikes.
It was the first time...
Juan Pierre’s hustle and back up catcher Eric Kratz’s game-tying home run brought a smile to my face in an 8-7 win over the Cardinals on Sunday, it is not the same as if the Phillies were four games back.
The Phillies are 52-62, again 10 games below .500, they are 18.5 games behind Washington and 12 behind the Atlanta Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates (a real feel-good story).
MIAMI -- Cole Hamels hasn't had much success against the Miami Marlins this year, but that changed on Monday night. Hamels pitched his second consecutive shutout, carrying the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-0 win over the Miami Marlins. "Obviously I haven't done too well against them recently, but it's just a matter of making pitches, hitting the target, and being...
Cole Hamels‘ three-pitch strikeout of Justin Ruggiano during the first inning of Monday night’s Phillies-Marlins game (box) in Miami isn’t more significant than most other three-pitch strikeouts, except for that (a) it occurred on three consecutive changeups and (b) it occurred in front of the very excellent Miami center-field camera, itself particularly well-situated to capturing...
MIAMI -- Cole Hamels pitched his second consecutive shutout Monday, carrying the Philadelphia Phillies to a 4-0 win over the Miami Marlins. Juan Pierre had three hits, including an RBI triple, and the Phillies beat the Marlins for the first time in six games. Domonic Brown, John Mayberry Jr. and Kevin Frandsen added two hits apiece. Hamels, who was 0-3 with a 5.21 ERA in three...
