And on September 1, the Phillies finally did something exciting.

Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon pitched the first combined no-hitter in Phillies history today. I’m not sure whether to be excited or mad that five months of terrible baseball caused me to miss this gem in favor of throwing a tennis ball and reading about #TheFappening on the beach.

Hamels was effectively wild, striking out seven and walking five, and Diekman, Giles and Papelbon were lights-out. Malvern Prep grad(!) Phil Gosselin made the final out.

Looks like T-Mac is going to have to get his fellow broadcasters Dunkin Donuts every morning:

In a 24-hour period, the Phillies have traded John Mayberry Jr. and pitched a no-hitter, and Jennifer Lawrence’s nudes were leaked all over the webs. The fall season is off to a strong start.

Video after the jump or here if it doesn’t play.


  1. Those Lawrence nudes >>>>>>

  2. Late to party on these. Links to pics would definitely be appreciated

  3. Is it a no hitter if nobody watches?

    Congrats to Cole & Carlos especially. I’m sorry Papelbon had to be a part of it; I have an irrational dislike for him and wish he was gone.

    So I tell the wife that the Phillies used four pitchers to complete a no-hitter today. First question, “did they use Bastardo”? Me….No, that would have been a miracle. But at least it was against the Braves. Her reply, “it would have been better again the Yankees”. She wasn’t born a Phan, but she’s learning.

  5. Great to see that some Atlanta fans stuck around til the end just to boo.

  6. Good for Cole and finally RAJ will free Maikel Franco and bring him up to the big leagues.
