The Phillies wrapped up their four-game season series against the Indians Wednesday afternoon, losing the game, 10-4, and the series, 32-12.

Matt drew attention to Cole Hamels’ 2013 command issues in the pregamer and another unpleasant outing followed.

In 106 pitches over five innings, Hamels threw 64 strikes and allowed five earned on six hits. He struck out four but walked two to take the National League lead in walks allowed with 24, one ahead of Tim Lincecum.

As for the bullpen in relief of Cole, Chad Durbin gave up two runs in 2/3 of work and Raul Valdes served up a three-run shot to right in the eighth.

Jimmy Rollins drove in three of the Phillies’ four runs, scoring John Mayberry in the third and Mayberry and Carlos Ruiz in the fifth. Chooch also crossed Delmon Young on a double in the ninth to record his 300th career RBI.

Cheer up by watching Carlos Zambrano beat the hell out of a Gatorade cooler and a Korean batter prematurely flip his bat to the amusement of the opposing dugout.

    So basically Cole’s response to his big contract and ace status is to give us 2009 Part 2…

    How do you turn an excellent player into an above average player? Give him a huge long-term contract.
