Cole Hamels hasn’t allowed a run in 22 consecutive innings coming into tonight’s contest against the Milwaukee Brewers. That includes two straight complete game shutouts. Three’s a charm, though.
A bit more on Cole from the game notes:
Hamels’ 22.0-inning streak is the longest active streak in the majors among starting pitchers and 3rd-longest active overall (TB’s J.P. Howell – 23.2 & CIN’s Aroldis Chapman – 22.2) … It is tied with Kyle Kendrick’s (6/28-8/3) streak (also 22.0 IP) for the longest of the season by a Phillies pitcher … Hamels’ career best scoreless streak of 25.0 innings was August 24-September 8, 2010.
Let’s hope he can best that career mark this evening.
One other quick positive note: the Phillies expect Carlos Ruiz to play again this season. A Choochless September with this team would have been quite sad.
Charlie Manuel’s Frandsen-in-the-two-hole lineup:
Tonight’s lineup @ MIL: Rollins SS, Frandsen 3B, Utley 2B, Howard 1B, Brown LF, Nix RF, Mayberry CF, Kratz C, Hamels P.
