Cubs SP Jason Hammel remains on roll with Saturday victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/6/2015) Spring was barely a month old the last time Cubs starter Jason Hammel did not achieve a quality start.

"Jason Hammel was outstanding," manager Joe Maddon said, per MLB.com. "How many games in a row is that? You talk about pitching at an All-Star quality or level, he has. He's been unbelievably good, consistent, deep into the game, strike thrower. Just outstanding."

by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

"We changed speeds pretty well early today," Hammel said, via MLB.com. "With (Miami), they're an early fastball-hitting team. So we kind of pitched backwards the first few innings, and it opened up the fastball for later.

"With my success, I had to learn after a while that if you walk guys and put guys on, you're putting yourself in trouble," Hammel said. "So I found success in the strike zone instead of outside the strike zone."

Hammel now has thrown 28 strikeouts over his last three games and has a 2.82 ERA for the season. 

His next start is projected for Saturday against the Nationals.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

"It all comes off the fastball," Hammel said, per MLB.com. "If you can't locate the fastball, you're going to be in big trouble. For me, it's especially important. I have to use my tall frame and use the downhill plane — sinkerballers, we have to establish a strike zone first and then you get swings early after that. I just worked on getting glove side and making sure I’m in counts that will make me succeed."

In the fifth inning, Hammel allowed a single to Francisco Cervelli, then Jordy Mercer reached on an error, moving Cervelli to second. After a sacrifice got Cervelli to third, he was left stranded on a Josh Harrison strikeout, one of Hammel's seven in the game.

"He kept hammering the strike zone, getting the first hitter out," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "He was in control of the game."

Hammel, now 2-1, lowered his ERA to 3.55 on the year. He will look to keep rolling Sunday against the Brewers.
