Six innings of work from starter Cole Hamels combined with the efforts of three relievers for the 10th combined no-hitter in baseball history.

Hamels made the start pitching the first six innings but left after throwing 108 pitches. If there was a knock against Hamels it was the five walks he allowed on the day which prevented him from going past the sixth.

Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon would come in to pitch the final three innings while not allowing a baserunner.

Phillies plated five runs – two earned – against Braves starter Julio Teheran and two more against reliever Juan Jaime. Outfielder Ben Revere plated five runs himself.

The Phillies moved to 63-74 with the win and have won seven of their last ten games while the Braves did themselves no favors in the wildcard chase with the loss.
