BEHIND COLE HAMELS, THE PHILLIES DEFEATED THE BRAVES LAST NIGHT, 10-6, GETTING HAMELS HIS FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON

PHILADELPHIA—After a season of freak accidents and frustrating outings for Cole Hamels, the Phillies ace got back on track last night at Citizens Bank Park.  Hamels pitched six innings, surrendering two runs. The lefthander had thrown 95 pitches, 64 for strikes, and allowed three hits while striking out seven, when he was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the sixth.

In his last two starts, Hamels was plagued by injuries, forcing him to, twice in a row, leave the game early.
