MLB: Philadelphia 1, San Francisco 0

Sept. 1, 2009 at 10:09 PM

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 1 (UPI) -- Cole Hamels pitched his fourth career shutout Tuesday when the Philadelphia Phillies blanked the San Francisco Giants 1-0.

Hamels (8-8) gave up just two hits and struck out nine in his career-best for a nine-inning game. The left-hander picked the potential tying run off first in the ninth and also stole a base, the first time for a Phillies pitcher since Curt Schilling in 1997.

Hamels has pitched 19 straight scoreless innings. Ryan Howard had the game's only RBI.

Jonathan Sanchez (6-11) was charged with the loss after giving up the lone run on three hits with three walks and eight strikeouts over six innings.
