Hamels (3-11) gave up one earned run and five hits, striking out eight without a walk. The former World Series MVP won for the first time since June 5.

Cole (4-1) lost for the first time in the majors after becoming the first Pirates’ pitcher to win his first four career starts since Nick Maddox in 1907. Cole allowed three runs and eight hits in 5 1-3 innings.

Hamels received some rare support as the Phillies have scored just 22 runs in his 11 losses.

Ben Revere had three of the Phillies’ 13 hits and two RBIs. Ruiz, Jimmy Rollins and Delmon Young each had two hits.
