Saturday marked Cole Hamel's 99th career regular season start at Citizens Bank Park, and perhaps his last as a Phillie. It was also his 200th career major league appearance.

Although the numbers are close, Hamels' regular season statistics at CBP are a little better than those away from home, but he was simply masterful in postseason road games (5-1, 2.01, .216 opp. BA).

Here are Hamels' career regular season and postseason numbers at home and on the road (*includes one relief appearance):
