Left-hander Cole Hamels will be looking to keep his scoreless streak going when the Philadelphia Phillies take on Adam Wainwright and the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday afternoon.
Cole Hamels pitched seven scoreless innings against the Atlanta Braves on Monday, but all he could get out of it was a no decision. He allowed just five hits in that game and walked two while striking out six. Hamels hasn't allowed a run since back on June 1, but he has just one win to show for it in those three games.
Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has six hits in 21 at-bats against Hamels with three doubles and five RBI. Allen Craig is 3-for-9 against him and is the only player on St. Louis who has been able to hit a home run off of the left-hander.
In his last start back on June 10, Adam Wainwright was able to pick up his ninth win of the season by pitching seven scoreless innings against the Tampa Bay Rays on the road. He allowed seven hits in that outing and walked two while striking out two. This season, Wainwright is 9-3 with a superb 2.15 ERA and he has only given up four home runs on 100.1 innings.
None of the Phillies have been able to hit a home run off of Wainwright yet, but shortstop Jimmy Rollins does have a .333 batting average against him in 24 at-bats.
