Cole Hamels wins his 14th game against the Milwaukee Brewers tonight and lowers his ERA to 2.60.
They also won the game without Ryan Howard, Chase Utley, and Jimmy Rollins in the lineup-- all three out with minor injuries.
Add to that: The Phillies played the Brewers at home. Prior to the game, Milwaukee was 50-19 at home.
Lee, Halladay, and Hamels are now third, fourth, and fifth in ERA in the NL:
NL Earned Run Average
Rank Player ERA
1 J. Cueto, Cin 2.36
2 C. Kershaw, LAD 2.45
3 C. Lee, Phi 2.47
4 R. Halladay, Phi 2.49
5 C. Hamels, Phi 2.60
And this from the Elias Sports Bureau: "It was the Phillies' 17th complete game of the season, the most by any team since the Orioles recorded 17 CGs in 1999."
