Hamels preparing for Thursday start after no-hitter

CHICAGO (AP) Fresh off baseball's third no-hitter of the season, Cole Hamels is preparing to start for the Philadelphia Phillies on Thursday.

That could change in a hurry.

Hamels could be on the move after he dominated the Chicago Cubs in a 5-0 victory on Saturday afternoon, striking out 13 in the 13th no-hitter in franchise history for the Phillies. The 31-year-old left-hander has been mentioned prominently in trade talks ahead of Friday's non-waiver deadline.

Hamels said Sunday he was feeling good, despite throwing 129 pitches. He said ''Everything felt more in sync than it had.''
