Cole Hamels and three Philadelphia Phillies relievers combined to pitch a no-hitter Monday, beating the Atlanta Braves 7-0 and giving a last-place team a rare reason to celebrate.

Hamels (8-6) was pulled after six innings and seemed fine with the decision. He struck out seven, walked five, hit a batter and threw 108 pitches on a hot afternoon at Turner Field.

Relievers Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and closer Jonathan Papelbon each pitched a hitless inning to finish off the fourth no-hitter in the majors this season.

Clayton Kershaw and Josh Beckett of the Dodgers and Tim Lincecum of the Giants each threw no-hitter earlier this year.

HS Football Preview - Wilmington Friends
By Sean Greene

VIDEO: A look at the Quakers
If there is strength in numbers, Wilmington Friends could be feeling like Hercules this season.

The Quakers welcomed what could be a record 51 players to their training camp this summer, including a senior class of 13 players.

One position that is wide open is at quarterback, where sophomore Justin Beneck and junior Cameron Kendle are battling to be the signalcaller for the Quakers. Beneck brings a hard charging run/pass style, with Kendle's accuracy being a major weapon as they will likely battle right to the season opener to be the starter.

Friends returns plenty of talent including Tight End/OLB Tommy Rhodes, running back Jimmy Carney, and two-way lineman Ian Furman.

The Quakers had a late-season 3-game winning streak to push them to a 4-5 record, and are looking to take that next step with their talent. They open their 2014 season against Baltimore Friends before facing Seaford in their home opener. A sign to the Quakers' success could be week 3's trip to Woodbridge.

Finnegan joins 2 ex-Blue Rocks in going to KC
By Associated Press

Pitcher Brandon Finnegan, who was the Kansas City Royals' first-round pick in the June draft out of TCU, will be among the September call-ups, the club said Sunday.

The previous two Royals players to make their major league debut the same year they were drafted were Bo Jackson in 1986 and Jeff Granger in 1993.

No player drafted this June has played in the majors so far this season.

Finnegan has a 1.33 ERA, allowing four earned runs in 27 innings in 13 appearances with Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Class A Wilmington. He has struck out 26 and walked four.

The Royals also will call up outfielders Terrance Gore, who has 47 stolen bases in 54 attempts with two minor-league clubs, and Lane Adams, who hit .269 with Northwest Arkansas.

Wilmington's Gemmell claims open water swimming title
By Associated Press

Olympians Andrew Gemmell and Haley Anderson won 10-kilometer titles in the open water competition at the Pan Pacific championships.

Gemmell, an alum of the Charter School of Wilmington, pulled away from the men's field down the stretch to win in 1 hour, 51 minutes and 11 seconds, nearly a minute ahead of silver medalist Jarrod Poort of Australia, who touched in 1:52.12.

Kane Radford of New Zealand took the bronze in 1:52.13 at Maui's Ulua Beach on Sunday.

Anderson, of Granite Bay California, edged teammate Eva Fabian of Keene, New Hampshire, for the gold by one second. Anderson won in 1:59.51; Fabian was second in 1:59.52. Chelsea Gubecka of Australia earned the bronze in 1:59.54.

With the victories, the U.S. has swept the men's and women's 10k titles at the past three Pan Pacs, including 2006 and 2010.

The open water races were relocated to Hawaii because of water quality issues at Gold Coast, Australia, where the Pan Pacs pool competition was held a week ago.
