Phillies lefthanded starter Cole Hamels left today's game with a right hand contusion, which required X-rays. The X-rays were negative and is is expected to make his next start Tuesday in Florida.

With one out in the fourth inning Red Sox slugger Adrian Gonzalez hit a line drive up the middle and knocked Hamels' glove off. Hamels reached down, fielded the ball with his left hand and threw Gonzalez out, but was in obvious pain. As medical staff and coaches looked on, Hamels threw several practice pitches and remained in the game. He retired Dustin Pedroia on a groundout to end the inning but was replaced by reliever David Herndon in the top of the fifth.

Hamels allowed non runs, two hits and struck out two in his four innings. He will remain 9-4.

The Phillies' golden pitching staff already has five of its top pitchers on the DL: No. 3 starter Roy Oswalt (back), No. 5 starter Joe Blanton (elbow), closer Brad Lidge (shoulder), closer Jose Contreras (elbow) and closer Ryan Madson (hand).
