Cole Hamels earned his first win of the season after pitching seven innings of one-run ball with just three hits, one walk and 10 strikeouts against the Reds on Saturday.
As if Hamels' last outing wasn't strong enough, he looked even better in this one against the Reds. He's now allowed just two runs over his last 14 innings and has a 21:5 K:BB over these last two starts. This is the Hamels everyone was expecting and though it took a few starts to shake the rust off from his shoulder, he looks like he's back to form. He'll face the hot-hitting Marlins in pitcher-friendly Miami his next time out.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jose Reyes pleaded not guilty to his domestic abuse charge.
Reyes was not present but his attorney entered the plea on his behalf. The next court date is scheduled for Jan. 14, when a pretrial hearing is scheduled. Reyes was arrested after an incident with his wife left her to be treated at the hospital for leg injuries and scratches on her neck. This is not going to be a good thing for Reyes or the Rockies or MLB for that matter. The league is likely going to let it play out in court before deciding if disciplinary actions should be taken.
