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.

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.

While Hamels did not factor in the decision, Carlos Ruiz prevented him from taking a loss with a game-tying home run in the seventh inning. Now that he's been pulled back from waivers, Hamels will finish the season in Philadelphia, but trade rumors will almost certainly begin to swirl again during the offseason.

The Phillies have pulled Hamels back from waivers, the Phillies' official site reports.

The Cubs were the team that claimed Hamels off revocable waivers this week, the Phillies' official site reports.

The Cubs have the prospects necessary to acquire Hamels, but a deal seems unlikely. The Phillies will be in a better negotiating position when they can engage other teams in trade discussions as well. That won't be an option until the offseason.
