Final: Phillies 1, Braves 6.

WP: Ben Sheets (3-0, 0.50 ERA)

LP: Cole Hamels (11-5, 3.31 ERA)

Cole Hamels's first start since signing his 6-year extension did not go quite as one would expect. He allowed five runs to cross the plate over just five innings pitched, while walking a career-high six batters.

The Phillies could not pull off a late-innings heroic comeback for their fifth consecutive game. RHP Joe Blanton (8-8) starts Saturday evening against LHP Mike Minor (5-7).
