Cole Hamels allowed three runs while striking out seven and walking none over seven innings of the no-decision Thursday against the Marlins.
All three runs came on solo-home runs, which were the first home runs Hamels had allowed over his last six starts. The quality start was Hamels sixth consecutive and ninth over his last ten starts. The lefty will look to continue that streak in his next start on Wednesday in a rematch with the Marlins, this time in Miami.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
