2015 Spring Training

Hamels tosses two scoreless in spring debut

spring-training-2015In a game that was interrupted by rain, lefty ace Cole Hamels notched two scoreless innings in his Grapefruit League season debut.

The 31-year-old Hamels started against the NY Yankees, surrendering just one hit while striking out two and walking none in a pair of frames.  According to Ben Davis on the Phillies television broadcast, Hamels was clocked at 86 to 88 MPH.

Hamels, who is entering his 10th big league season, tallied a 9-9 record with a 2.49 ERA and an 8.7 K/9 mark in 30 starts last season for the Phils.

Standing at a scoreless tie, Friday’s spring game was stopped in the middle of the 3rd inning for a rain delay.

Once the game resumed, the Yankees plated three runs off of right-hander Mike Nesseth in the fourth inning, as they batted around.

Flame thrower Kenny Giles allowed one earned run in an inning of work, while Jake Diekman threw a scoreless 1-2-3 inning and was clocked at 93 MPH in his spring debut.

The Phils scored a run on a solo homer by Xavier Paul in the 7th inning.

New York won by a final of 4-1 to put the Phillies’ record at 1-2-1 on the spring season thus far.
