In a season where Murphy’s Law has been in place for the first five months at least the Phillies can enter the final month of 2013 not having to worry about a thing concerning Cole Hamels. Despite his league leading loss total the 29-year-old lefthander has slowly but surely looked like himself this summer. Hamels resurgence continued on Wednesday night at Citi Field. Hamels allowed nine hits but held the Mets to two runs in seven innings to lead the Phillies to a 6-2 victory. The Phils have won 8 of their last 11 games. They can capture their third straight series win with another victory at Citi Field today. Hamels who entered the game with a 5-13 record but also with the fourth lowest run support average in the National League helped his own cause at the plate too. Hamels hit a two-out two-run single to break up a 1-1 tie in the fifth inning. Chase Utley (2-for-5) Carlos Ruiz (2-for-4) and Michael Young (2-for-5) also chipped in for the offense. Ruiz hit a solo home run in the sixth inning his fifth of the season.
