Cole Hamels pitched well in a no-decision Thursday, giving up three runs while striking out eight over seven frames in a loss to the Cardinals.
The first two runs Hamels surrendered came under dubious circumstances, as it appeared that a Yadier Molina two-RBI double in the fourth inning actually landed just foul. It was a nice showing regardless, as the lefty permitted just five hits and walked a pair. Hamels has put up two straight solid outings, but he's still looking for his first win. He'll take a 6.46 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into next week's start against the Pirates.
