11:24 pm
offense he connects with a three run homer for the big piece. seventeenth of the season. he puts the phils up three-nothing. in the seventh hamels locked in. that's anthony rizzo looking silly and jorge solare no energy for him chris donofrio don't even bother. fans loving it. on to the ninth, three outs to go, here is addison russell with the ground out. that is out number one. everyone can feel it. cole knows but he's locked in. dexter fowler 96 miles an hour right down the middle. phillies fans the hearts pap at any timing. chris bryant sends one to deep center field. will it stay? will it go? it stays and odubel herrera miss plays but recovers and makes the catch. it is the first no-hitter at wrigley field in 50 years. sandy colfax is the last to do it. how about that carlos ruiz that's his fourth no-hitter behind the plate tying a major
11:25 pm
league record for catchers as cole and chooch with more magic. here's cole postgame. >> i think nothing will top winning the world series but this is on that top list. it's right under it. a great hitter up there in chris bryant and to be able to keep that in the ballpark and then for herrera making that amazing play the second time you know, outstanding for him to be able to do that and to go all out. >> odubel are you lucky my friend. for the cubs not much to discuss. they gave hamels a tip of the hat on twitter. this photo here courtesy of our friend turtle producer at 94 wip he was out in chicago, this just moments after the no-hitter at murphy's across the street from wrigley it's a help wanted sign, trade for hamels now. the cubs one of the teams showing interest in cole along with the yankees the dodgers
11:26 pm
and a few others. cole hamels is getting all the attention but he is not the only one on the trade block. the washington nationals reportedly had discussions with the phillies about jonathan papelbon who has made it known he wants to pitch for a contender. the other problem he stated he'll only accept a trade to a team that will keep him as their closer. that may be tough to find. hall of fame ceremonies in cooperstown normally a time for celebration not confrontation. ad allegedly reggie jackson was involved in an altercation with a fan. jackson confirmed that the confrontation occurred but denied that it turned physical. on the eve of the gold cup third place game u.s. head coach admitted disappointment that the team would not be playing in the finals that the linc on sunday. that's understandable. the u.s. battled panama for
11:27 pm
the consolation prize at ppl park in chester. with the u.s. down a goal in the 70th minute, he turns and finds clint dempsey. a beautiful goal. that would tie it at one and we would go on to penalty kicks. demarcus beasley is turned aside and panama has the upset. they beat the u.s. three i've two on pk's. they take third place. edd is a major problem. elaina delle donne no different in a wnba all-star game in connecticut. delle donne putting up 16 points. a nice up and under basket there. but the east squad would fall to the west 117 to 112. a week after the british open the tour hits ontario at the rbc canadian open. no jordan spieth. some big names still around but it's ontario native david hearne who leads after 15 rounds. if you ain't first you're last
