Veteran lefty Cole Hamels will get the call for the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday night and will go up against six-game winner Julio Teheran and the Atlanta Braves.
On Wednesday, Cole Hamels pitched eight scoreless innings against the San Diego Padres, but all he got from that start was a no decision. He allowed just five hits in that game and struck out a season-high 11 batters while walking only one hitter. Through 10 starts, Hamels is just 2-3, but he does have an above-average ERA of 3.07 and he has struck out 70 batters in 67.1 innings.
Braves second baseman Dan Uggla has never done well versus Hamels, going just 9-for-62 against him with three home runs and 22 strikeouts. Outfielder Justin Upton is 7-for-23 against Hamels in his career with a double and a homer.
23-year-old Julio Teheran had his worst start of the year on Wednesday against the Colorado Rockies on the road when he let in seven earned runs on 10 hits in 6.1 innings of work. He ended up striking out five in that game and walked no one. On the season, Teheran is 6-4 and he has a very solid 2.41 ERA.
Veteran shortstop Jimmy Rollins has five hits in 13 at-bats against Teheran with a double, a home run and two RBI. Outfielder Marlon Byrd has just one hit against him in eight at-bats with four strikeouts.
