Hamels fo­cus of trade ru­mours af­ter no-hitter

Cape Breton Post - - SPORTS -

CHICAGO — Fresh off base­ball’s third no-hitter of the sea­son, Cole Hamels is pre­par­ing to start for the Philadelphia Phillies on Thurs­day. That could change in a hurry. Hamels could be on the move af­ter he dom­i­nated the Chicago Cubs in a 5-0 vic­tory on Satur­day af­ter­noon, strik­ing out 13 in the 13th no-hitter in fran­chise history for the Phillies. The 31-year- old left­hander has been men­tioned promi­nently in trade talks ahead of Fri­day’s non-waiver dead­line. Hamels threw a sea­son-high 129 pitches in his first win since May 23, but said Sun­day he was feel­ing good. “Ev­ery­thing felt more in sync than it had,” he said. “I don’t feel like I threw as many pitches as I did. That’s a good sign. It means I was throw­ing cor­rectly.” The As­so­ci­ated Press
