Cole Hamels and the Philadelphia Phillies combined to no-hit the Atlanta Braves on Monday, highlighting the Braves' offensive woes this season. Even with five walks, they struck out 12 times in a 7-0 loss.
Jonathan Papelbon finished the game with a perfect ninth, but Hamels continued his dominance over Atlanta with seven strikeouts over six innings, despite walking five batters and hitting one with a pitch.
Fredi Gonzalez also took some heat from fans in the bottom of the ninth when he pinch-hit Jose Constanza for Justin Upton. Upton has struck out in five of his last 11 at-bats and didn't argue over the decision.
The Braves have scored one run in their last 27 innings but have somehow managed to stay 1.5 games out of the Wild Card.
