Hamels Dominant, Wins 9th

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels was unstoppable again, pitching eight innings, giving up two earned runs and striking out eight. Chase Utley was 3 for 3 with a homerun and four RBIs while Greg Dobbs contributed two hits and two RBIs. While Cole Hamels was fooling anyone when he said he plans to win twenty games this year. He has come out and done his job better than anyone could have asked to and hasn't shown any signs of slowing down. It was obvious in his first year when he had nine wins that he could maintain a job in the majors and do a solid job. The Phillies are 3.5 games behind the Mets and will look to sweep the White Sox tomorrow sending rookie Kyle Kendrick to the mound against John Danks. Hamels will look to get ten wins against the Indians in Cleveland probably against Fausto Carmona, who has been doing a great job for the Indians this year with seven wins.
