Cool Hand Cole

Cole Hamels was masterful against Giants, pitching a complete game shutout, allowing only two hits while striking out nine. He retired 21 consecutive batters at one point. The Phillies needed the effort – scoring only one run themselves, a Ryan Howard double that plated Shane Victorino.  Phils win 1-0.
