Cole Hamels and three relievers toss a combined no-hitter vs. Atlanta
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels and three relievers tossed a combined no-hitter Monday afternoon against the Braves in Atlanta. It's the first combined no-hitter in franchise history.

Hamels was denied a no-hitter due to a high pitch count. He was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the seventh inning with a no-hitter intact. He issued five walks and ran his pitch count to 108 before his day was over. He struck out seven over six hitless innings and picked up the win.

Jake Diekman struck out two in a perfect seventh inning and Ken Giles struck out the side in the eighth. Jonathan Papelbon needed nine pitches to retire Jose Constanza, Chris Johnson and Phil Gosselin to secure a 7-0 no-hit victory and the save.

Ken Giles shines in first month with Phillies
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Phillies rookie pitcher Ken Giles has overcome allowing a home run in his first major-league appearance on June 12 to throw 13 2/3 scoreless innings while striking out 17 batters and walking three in his last 12 appearances.

Giles has quickly risen through the minor-league ranks after getting selected in the seventh round of the 2011 draft. He's dominated minor-league hitters while racking up 12.1 strikeouts per nine innings over his career, but he's also exhibited control issues. If he continues to keep a handle on the walks at the major-league level, he could quickly factor into the ninth-inning discussion if closer Jonathan Papelbon gets dealt before the deadline.

Top relief prospect Ken Giles getting the call
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Phillies will call up reliever Ken Giles from Triple-A Lehigh Valley Sunday, with Mike Adams hitting the 15-day disabled list.

Giles has been dominant in the minors this season, sporting a fastball that regularly sits in the high 90's. He has 38 strikeouts in 28 2/3 innings of work between Double-A and Triple-A this season.

Ken Giles a 'fun' pitcher to watch
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

One player in Phillies' camp this spring that could draw plenty of attention is reliever Ken Giles, who is looking to make the jump from high Class A to the majors. Giles grabs attention with a fastball that can hit 100 mph.

Though, control issues have plagued the hard-throwing right-hander, who has walked 5.8 batters per nine innings in his minor-league career.

"When he’s right, it’s fun to watch," Joe Jordan, the Phillies’ director of player development, told CSNPhilly.com. "It’s the stuff that pitches at the end of games in the big leagues. But he’s not there yet. He’s going to have to pitch under control and throw strikes."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Phillies announced Wednesday they invited five players to spring training as non-roster invitees. They are pitchers Jesse Biddle, Mario Hollands and Ken Giles, third baseman Maikel Franco and catcher Sebastian Valle.

Biddle and Franco are considered the team's two top prospects by Baseball America.
