Cubs' Cole Hamels: Tosses eight scoreless frames
Hamels (5-2) threw eight scoreless innings Friday, allowing just three hits and one walk while striking out 10 to earn the win over the Cardinals.
The 35-year-old hasn't allowed an earned run in his last 15 frames, but Hamels also had his best strikeout stuff working Friday afternoon. He reached a season-high 10 punchouts behind 22 swing-and-misses. Hamels is 5-2 but this was still a big win, because before Friday he had only posted one victory in his last eight outings. Hamels also has a 3.24 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 74 strikeouts in 77.2 innings. He will face a tall task in his next start at the Rockies on Wednesday.
