The Phillies had something to cheer about in September despite being mired in last place and struggling to figure out what their future looks like.


Cole Hamels, Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon combined for the first ever Phillies team no-hitterr in a 7-0 win over the Braves Monday afternoon.



Hamels was effectively wild during his six innings, striking out seven but walking five. He compiled 108 pitches through six frames and was replaced by Diekman.


The bullpen did its job and Papelbon got a one-two-three inning in the ninth before a subdued but celebratory embrace took place on the mound.

The no-no is the first combined affair since the Mariners did it back on June 8, 2012.
