Philadelphia Phillies pitcher (for now) Cole Hamels decided to up his stock on Saturday with a no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs.

The worst kept secret in the world is the idea that the Philadelphia Phillies are shopping ace lefty Cole Hamels. The Phils are in a deep depression needing to shed veteran salaries and desperately turn a new leaf.

On Saturday, the ace of the staff decided to do Philly general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. a phenomenal favor.

Cole Hamels pitched a no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field, thus upping his stock around MLB.

Hamels final line turned out to be nine innings, no hits, two walks and 13 strikeouts.

This day wouldn’t have been possible if it hadn’t been for this play:

Phillies center-fielder Odubel Herrera initially overran the ball hit by the eventual final out in Kris Bryant. However, he redeemed himself and mad a diving, awkward catch to cap off history.
