Hamels Hammered Early, Often… Phils Win!

Jul 26, 2008, 5:20 PM EDT

Sorry for the delayed game thread post, but Enrico’s comp is on the fritz, and I’m on vacation in Red Sox land (Maine, not Boston). I’m borrowing some wireless from an unsuspecting neighbor, so I’ll keep this brief and let those of you who can actually see the game take over.

Our Lord and Saviour Cole Hamels got dismantled by the Braves, giving up four ER, and nine total runs in the fourth inning. The Bravos batted around, and the Phillies committed two errors (Utley, Hamels). Based on Yahoo stat tracker, Cole didn’t seem to have much command, yielding six hits and three free passes versus only two punchouts. Mark Teixera put him out of his misery, belting a three-run homer and scoring for the second time in the inning.

Game’s not over yet folks. If you will it, it is no dream.

UPDATE: PHILS WIN. Crooked innings, crooked innings.
