King Cole Returns

Hamels

This afternoon will mark the return of King Cole Hamels to the postseason stage. The reigning World Series and NLCS MVP, takes the mound this at 2:37 at Citizens Bank Park. He will be opposed by righty Aaron Cook.

It’s been a down year for Hamels. He was initially hampered by arm trouble in spring training, and later lacked command of his fastball which led to a couple really tough outings through the spring and early summer. Cole also is a concerning 0-6 in day games this season.

All of that will be wiped away today, if Cole can hurl a gem this afternoon. A victory will give the Phils’ a commanding two game lead heading into Colorado for Game 3.
