Phillies throw first combined no-hitter in franchise history

Monday September 1st, 2014

Four Phillies pitchers combined for a no-hitter against the Braves on Monday. It was the 12th no-hitter - and the first combined no-hitter - in franchise history.

It was the first combined no-hitter in Major League Baseball since the Mariners accomplished the feat on June 8, 2012.

Cole Hamels started the game for the Phillies and pitched six hitless innings before being pulled with 108 pitches. He walked five batters.

Papelbon retired Jose Costanza, Chris Johnson and Phil Gosselin to finish the no-hitter.

The last Phillies no-hitter was Roy Halladay's in Game 1 of the 2010 NLDS.
