Cole Hamels, The Reds who had the highest average team in the National League batting during the regular season managed only 11 hits in three ALDS games against the Phillies. The Phillies advanced to their championship series for the third time in a row after sweeping the Cincinnati Reds and the delivery of its seventh straight postseason loss.
Roy Halladay Cole Hamels took a shutout and complete every game this series. Four days after Halladay’s no-hitter in his debut in the postseason, Hamels is always the grand finale on Sunday, allowing only five hits and no walks while striking out nine. Hamels is the sixth postseason victory tied him with Steve Carlton for most of the history of the Phillies.
According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Halladay and Hamels were the first teammates to throw complete game shutouts in the postseason series since Ken Holtzman himself and Vida Blue did it for the Athletics in the 1974 ALCS against the Orioles.
It was not just the lack of hitting, fielding, but the poor that resulted in the Reds’ early departure. Cincinnati was the fourth team since 1969 to have more errors than runs in a postseason series. Interestingly, the Reds just 72 errors during the regular season, tied for the second-fewest in baseball.
