Hamels, coming off a five-hitter against Atlanta last Tuesday, scattered seven hits and struck out five in his sixth career shutout and 12th complete game. He walked only one and threw 85 of 113 pitches for strikes.

It was the first time Hamels tossed two shutouts in a row. The previous Phillies pitcher to accomplish the feat was Cliff Lee, who had three straight in June 2011.

Hamels (13-6) entered 0-3 with a 5.21 ERA in three outings against the Marlins this season. But in his three August starts, he is 2-1 with a 0.72 ERA. He has struck out 20 and walked two.
