Cole Hamels Sharp As Phillies Down Marlins 4-1

Cole Hamels turned in a fine performance in his last start of year striking out 8 and allowing just 1 run over 7 innings of work as the Phillies beat the Marlins 4-1.

Hamels finishes the year with career highs in strikeouts (216) and wins 17.

Carlos Ruiz continued steaming toward the finish with a 3 hit game. He's hitting .330 on the season. Nate Scheirholtz had a pair of hits and an RBI.

Jonathon Papelbon worked around a couple singles in the 9th for his 38th save of the season.

The Phillies now head to Washington for their final series of the season. One win will guarantee them at least a .500 record.
