An Adrian Gonzalez line drive off the non-pitching hand of Cole Hamels sent the Phillies lefty to the showers early Thursday afternoon. Hamels completed the play, getting Gonzalez at first and finished the inning but did not come out for the fifth. X-Rays proved negative and Hamels is expected back for his next start. On the game side, David Herndon, who replaced Hamels to start the fifth, gave up three runs in two innings work as the Boston Red Sox beat Philadelphia 5-2. Ryan Howard's two-run home run in the ninth accounted for all the Phillies offense.
