by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1:03 am ET) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels earned a win Wednesday, allowing one earned run on seven hits and one walk in seven innings while striking out nine in his team's 5-2 victory over the Padres.

Hamels (9-7) gave up just one run for the second straight start, and he's turned in 11 quality starts in 12 tries in the second half, with the only "off" day resulting in a five-inning, three-run win. He owns an excellent 2.47 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 187:57 K:BB ratio in 189 2/3 innings. Hamels is scheduled to face the Marlins Tuesday.

Hamels allowed one run on nine hits over seven innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Hamels started out strong, throwing five scoreless innings to open the game. He gave up his only run in the sixth. After putting men on first and third, Hamels allowed an RBI single to Adeiny Hechavarria.

Hamels was matched by Henderson Alvarez during the start, picking up the no-decision. He’ll take on the Padres in his next start. 


Cole Hamels commits costly balk in loss


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels allowed three runs on seven hits in 6 1/3 innings Sunday in a 3-2 loss to the Nationals. Hamels' biggest mistake came when he balked Ian Desmond to third in the sixth inning, enabling Washington to grab the lead on a sacrifice fly.

Cole Hamels and three relievers toss a combined no-hitter vs. Atlanta


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels and three relievers tossed a combined no-hitter Monday afternoon against the Braves in Atlanta. It's the first combined no-hitter in franchise history.

Hamels was denied a no-hitter due to a high pitch count. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning with a no-hitter intact. He issued five walks and ran his pitch count to 108 before his day was over. He struck out seven over six hitless innings and picked up the win.

Jake Diekman struck out two in a perfect seventh inning and Ken Giles struck out the side in the eighth. Jonathan Papelbon needed nine pitches to retire Jose Constanza, Chris Johnson and Phil Gosselin to secure a 7-0 no-hit victory and the save.

Cole Hamels reportedly upset at Ryne Sandberg over hook


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2014) Phillies standout left-hander Cole Hamels appeared upset at being removed from the Tuesday night game against Washinton after 84 pitches and seven-plus innings in a no-decision.

Hamels was removed by Ryne Sandberg after yielding a game-tying homer to open the eighth. According to CSNPhilly.com, he clearly looked angry when Sandberg emerged from the dugout. He looked around in disgust, began walking off the mound before Sandberg arrived and handed him the ball.

Hamels, however, would not address the issue when asked about it after the game, eventually won by the Phillies. "Um, I just think it was a good game and we were able to win," he said in avoiding the question. "It was a good game that we won today," he later said. "See you guys."

Hamels has been victimized by a lack of run support this season, which explains a 7-6 record despite a 2.59 ERA that ranks fifth in the National League.


Cole Hamels earns no decision despite strong start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels tossed a strong start Tuesday against the Nationals. 

Hamels allowed three runs on eight hits over seven innings. He struck out five and walked one during the outing. Hamels was dominant early, keeping the Nationals off the board through the first six innings. He ran into some trouble near the end of his start. Hamels loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, and immediately gave up two run-scoring singles. Hamels came out for the eighth inning, but allowed a solo home to Asdrubal Cabrera to lead off the inning. He was pulled from the game at that point. Hamels threw 84 pitches during the outing. 

Hamels left with the game tied, picking up a no-decision. He’ll take on the Braves in his next start.


Cole Hamels struggles through five-and-fly victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Phillies southpaw Cole Hamels didn't stick around long enough Wednesday to earn his ninth consecutive quality start, but he did last long enough to raise his record to 8-6.

Hamels took advantage of a three-run fourth inning that provided a 4-3 lead and rode a five-and-fly to victory. He allowed three runs on nine hits with one walk and four strikeouts. Among his mistakes was slammed over the fence in the second inning by Kendrys Morales.

The veteran is set to start again Tuesday against Washington.


Cole Hamels turns in a quality outing Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/16/2014) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels turned in a quality start Friday against the Giants.

Hamels allowed three runs on nine hits over seven innings of work. He struck out five and walked two during the outing. All three runs came in the fourth inning. After Hamels gave up a single and a double to open the frame, he allowed a three-run homer to Michael Morse. Hamels would settle in at that point, throwing three additional scoreless innings.

The Phillies managed to mount a comeback against the Giants, giving Hamels a no-decision. He’ll take on the Mariners in his next start.

Cole Hamels focusing on playing for contender


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Phillies ace Cole Hamels has changed his tune since early July, when he announced he wanted to remain in Philadelphia and that he was happy there. While he is now claiming that he is not self-motivated to leave, he has stressed that he is driven by winning titles.

A run of championships does not seem to be on the horizon for an aging Phillies team that might require a rebuild before it returns to contention.

"I want to try to get as many [rings] as I can," he told the Philadelphia Daily News. "And I know my window of opportunity is only so large ... I'm in my prime, so I want to maximize what I can do and be an asset. I want to be an asset. That's the only thing I can do - be accountable and be an asset for something. And winning is the something."

Hamels, who signed a six-year, $144 million contract extension two years ago, has been rumored to be bound for Boston. The Boston Globe has claimed the Phillies have spent a great deal of time scouting the Red Sox for their major league-ready young talent.


Cole Hamles gives up one run in no-decision vs. Mets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels wasn't a factor in the decision Saturday after allowing one earned run on five hits and three walks in seven innings and striking out five in his team's 2-1, 11-inning loss to the Mets.

Hamels tossed four scoreless innings before loading the bases with no outs in the fifth. He was able to escape with just one run on the scoreboard but was still in line for a loss before his offense evened the game with a seventh-inning home run. Hamels hasn't given up more than one run in any of his last five outings, giving him a 2.37 ERA and 144:43 K:BB ratio in 144 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Giants Friday.


Waiver window expires; Cole Hamels staying put for now


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/8/2014) Phillies ace left-hander Cole Hamels has been pulled back off waivers as a deal with the Cubs has been taken off the table, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.

It appears that Hamels, who is signed through 2018, will remain with the Phillies for at least the rest of this season. He has increased his value with a brilliant year despite a distinct lack of run support. He has been particularly strong lately with two runs allowed and 33 strikeouts in his last 30 innings pitched.

Report: Phillies prefer to trade Cliff Lee, not Cole Hamels


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) The Phillies have a pair of veteran left-handed starters on big contracts whose names have swirled in trade rumors this season, but that doesn't mean they value them equally.

CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Friday the team's preference is to move Cliff Lee ahead of Cole Hamels. Lee is recovering from an elbow injury but should be back in the next few weeks, and the team has a much lower asking price for him than Hamels at this point. Hamels is also considered more likely to utilize the no-trade clause in his contract than Lee, with both players having at least 20 teams they cannot be traded to without prior notification.

Hamels has a 2.93 ERA and 3-5 record on the season, while Lee was at 4-4 with a 3.18 mark prior to his injury, which has kept him out since mid-May. It is not clear at this point if any deal is imminent.
