Hamels on historic roll for Phillies

MIAMI -- Cole Hamels is on a roll.

Here is further proof: Elias Sports Bureau said Hamels, who threw his second consecutive shutout Monday in Miami, and Mets ace Johan Santana are the only two pitchers to throw consecutive shutouts this season. Hamels is just the third Phillies pitcher to throw consecutive shutouts in the past 20 seasons. Cory Lidle had two consecutive shutouts in 2004, and Cliff Lee had three consecutive shutouts in '11.

Hamels will enter Saturday's start in Milwaukee with a 22-inning scoreless streak.
