Cole Hamels & Company No-Hit Braves

On Memorial Day, the Philadelphia Phillies were no-hit by Dodgers hurler Josh Beckett.

On Labor Day, the Phillies were on the right side of a no-hitter as Cole Hamels and relievers Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon combined on a no-hitter against the Atlanta Braves. Phillies manager pinch hit for Hamels in the seventh inning after Hamels threw 108 pitches in 100 degree heat. 

The combined no-hitter is the fourth of the 2014 season. Beckett, Clayton Kershaw and Tim Lincecum have tossed the other three no-nos. It’s the first combined no-hitter since 2012 when Seattle Mariners pitcher Kevin Millwood and four relievers no-hit the Dodgers. 

Today was a good day for the Phillies in a season where there hasn’t been a lot of them. The Phillies are in last place in the NL East, 15 games back of the Washington Nationals.
