Cole Hamels gave up three runs on nine hits and two walks with five strikeouts over seven innings against the Giants on Friday.

Simply put, Hamels has been absolutely ridiculous for his fantasy owners since his last start of the first half of the season. He's now thrown eight-straight quality starts and has posted a 1.56 ERA with a 55:12 K:BB over 57.2 innings. The only concern is the high pitch counts as the Phillies see hellbent on ruining his arm sometimes. He's now thrown 100 or more pitches in six of his last eight starts with over 115 in two of those. They'll keep running him out there though so don't think he'll be held back at all. It's business as usual here. He'll face the Mariners for his next time out.
