Four Phillies Pitchers No Hit The Braves

Geez it sucks to be a Braves fan this year.

The Philadelphia Phillies used 4-pitchers to throw the first "Multi-Pitcher" no-hitter since 2012, beating the usually hapless Atlanta Braves 7-0 Monday afternoon.

Cole Hamels, Jake Dierkman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon are your pitchers of record as the Phillies just laid one on the Braves who have scored one run in the last 3 games---total.

Hamels was not sharp, walking 5 in 6 innings along with hitting a batter. But he struck out 7 as the punchless Braves continued their pathetic performance of hitting with runners in scoring position.

All-in-all, the Phillies foursome combined to strike out 12 Atlanta hitters.

Marlon Byrd robbing the Braves Chris Johnson of a hit here in the 3rd was perhaps the closest the Braves came to getting a hit all day.

Thanks (we'll try adding more, when highlights available)
