Homers Hurt Hamels

Cole Hamels had a no-hitter going into the seventh but that was ended abruptly. San Diego’s Adrian Gonzalez and Scott Hairston hit back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning en route to a 3-1 victory over the Phillies, splitting the four-game series.

Hamels pitched eight innings, allowing only two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out six. Wade LeBlanc got the win for the Friars, pitching seven shut out innings and allowing four runs and a walk while walking two strike outs.

The Phillies got their lone run in the ninth when Ryan Howard hit an RBI double. Jayson Werth followed that up with a strike out to end the game. Howard’s double was the only extra base-hit of the game for the Phillies.

Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a homer, two runs, and two RBIs. Hairston also had two hits, one being a homer.

Doubles: Howard (9).

WP: LeBlanc (3-4). LP: Hamels (5-5). S: H. Bell (16).



The Phillies drafted Jesse Biddle with the 27th pick of the amateur draft today. The 18-year-old left-handed pitcher stands at 6-foot-5, 235-pounds and pitched at the Germantown Friends School. He is the highest-picked local talent in Phillies history.
