Final Road Trip
Team left after Thursday night’s win for Atlanta and the start of the final regular season road trip, a 10-game toughie against the Braves (three), Marlins (three, including a doubleheader) and Brewers (four).
Hamels was sharp again. He’s on a September roll after an empty August. When he allowed a run in the seventh inning, it broke a streak of 29 scoreless innings by the starters. Previous run was allowed by Kyle in the eighth inning of Sunday’s afternoon game. The 29 innings was the longest since a 37-inning streak in 1969.
