The biggest number for Cole Hamels after six innings wasn't the zero in the hits allowed column but the 108 pitches thrown by the Philadelphia Phillies' starter. Hamels and three Phillies relievers combined on the season's fourth no-hitter, blanking the Atlanta Braves 7-0 on Monday and giving a last-place team a rare reason to rejoice. Relievers Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a perfect inning to close out the 11th combined no-hitter in big league history. ''It's a little more dramatic to be able to see that you're trying to play the cards as best you can against the lineup.'' Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg knew Hamels was tired and ready to come out of the game.
