Hamels allows 1 unearned run over 2 innings

Cole Hamels allowed one unearned run over two innings in the Philadelphia Phillies' 5-4 victory over the New York Yankees on Saturday.

The lone hit off Hamels was a two-out double in the second by Francisco Cervelli that tied it 1-1. The left-hander struck out two, walked one and hit a batter during his 33-pitch outing.

The Phillies have assembled a starting rotation that is being compared to some of the best in baseball history. Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt and Hamels would be the ace on many staffs.

Yankees starter Bartolo Colon gave up one run and two hits in two innings. The right-hander threw 23 of 36 pitches for strikes.

Dane Sardinha put the Phillies ahead 5-4 in the eighth on a two-run bloop single to left. Mark Teixeria, who was hit on the top of the right toe by Hamels in the first, hit a fifth-inning RBI triple.
