A rare event this year for the Phillies has been having all aspects of their game working together at the same time. In an 8-0 win over the Brewers, the pitching, offense and defense all performed very well. On the mound, Kyle Kendrick took one more positive step towards earning a spot in next year’s rotation. He went 8 innings, allowing only 3 hits, 1 walk and no runs. It was his second shut-out start in row. As I have said before, we all knew Kendrick could pitch. It was just a matter of seeing some consistency from him; and now, Kendrick appears to finally be on a roll. The offense did not disappoint either, although it came from a few odd sources. Michael Martinez, who is hitting only .153, came up with a huge 2-run homer in the 2nd inning to get the Phillies an early lead. Both Domonic Brown and Kevin Fransden each had 3-hit nights, with Brown collecting 4 RBI. It was a monster night for Brown who is trying to prove he belongs in the Bigs. Fransden is opening many eyes with bo...

Hamels Dominates Again, Notches 14th Win

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.

Mayberry, Kratz Homer in 4-3 Victory over Brewers, Hamels Masterful Once Again

Another beauty of an outing from Cole Hamels tonight helped snap a three-game losing streak for the Phillies.

To follow, Erik Kratz sent a monster home run into the second deck seats in left field. Those back-to-back homers gave the Phils a 3-0 lead. Aramis...

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.
