Hamels gave up two earned runs on seven hits and one walk with four strikeouts in seven innings Tuesday against the Marlins.

As has been the case for most of the season, Hamels was not given any run support from his teammates, and was the tough-luck loser. Hamels was actually the only player on the Phillies with an extra-base hit against the Marlins on Tuesday. His 9-8 record certainly won't jump off the page, but his 2.47 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 191 strikeouts in 196.2 innings demonstrates just how valuable he's been this season. He'll start the Phillies' final game of the season Sunday against the Braves.

Hamels is on track to start the final game of the season Sunday, Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

As of now, the Phillies have not revealed any plans to shut Hamels down after his start against the Marlins on Tuesday night. While the team is well out of contention, Hamels projects to throw his fewest number of innings since 2009, so overworking the 30-year-old is not a major concern. Last season, Hamels threw 220.0 innings, and heading into Tuesday's start he sits at 189.2.

Hamels continued his strong second half Friday night, as he now sports an outstanding 1.91 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 8.6 K/9 over 11 starts since the All-Star break. The Phillies' lefty has certainly been one of the NL's best during this stretch and will look to keep it rolling Wednesday versus the Padres.

Hamels took the loss despite the quality start he recorded Sunday, allowing three earned runs on seven hits and three walks over 6.1 innings.

Hamels also struck out seven in the game, but was bitten by the home run bug twice in the game, which accounted for two of the three runs scored against him. He had good stuff Sunday, getting 17 swing-and-miss strikes, but his two mistakes and the lack of run support cost him a chance at a win. The Phillies' ace will look to continue his phenomenal season (2.56 ERA and 1.17 WHIP) against the Marlins on Friday.

Hamels earned the win by tossing six of the Phillies' nine hitless innings Monday afternoon against the Braves.

The Phillies' lefty struggled with his control in this one, walking five to effectively end his chance at tossing the no-hitter by himself. Hamels has been brilliant this season, allowing three or fewer runs in every start since May 27. He faces the Nationals this weekend in his next start.

Hamels lasted seven innings Tuesday, allowing three runs on eight hits while fanning five and walking one in a no-decision against the visiting Nationals.

Hamels got after hitters in this one to the tune of 20-of-29 first-pitch strikes, a display of command that helped him shut out the Nats until the seventh inning when four singles and a walk, plus a solo homer in the eighth, tied the game 3-3. The lefty's ERA now sits at 2.59 on the year -- below his career average of 3.30 -- while his WHIP (1.16) is remarkably close to his average of 1.14 over nearly a decade in the majors. Hamels will look to improve to 8-6 when he next tosses Sunday at Atlanta.
