 width=>>Nola Leads Phils Past Cubs For Series Sweep

Aaron Nola earned his first major-league win a day after Cole Hamels threw a no-hitter and the Philadelphia Phillies routed the Chicago Cubs 11-5 on Sunday to finish off a three-game sweep.

Nola (1-1) had six strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks. The 22-year-old right-hander, who helped himself with an RBI single, lost his major league debut on Tuesday despite giving up just one run on a homer by Tampa Bay pitcher Nathan Karns.

Hamels struck out 13 on Saturday, becoming the first pitcher to no-hit the Cubs since Sandy Koufax's perfect game on Sept. 9, 1965.

The Phillies cranked out 17 hits on Sunday for their eighth win in nine games. Maikel Franco and Ryan Howard each hit two-run homers -- Franco had three RBI -- and Domonic Brown doubled, tripled and drove in three.

Cubs catcher David Ross pitched a 1-2-3 top of the ninth, then homered in the bottom of the inning. Dexter Fowler and Addison Russell also homered for the Cubs, who have lost four of five.

The Phillies scored three runs before Cubs starter Jason Hammel (5-5) got an out. Cesar Hernandez led off the game with a single, Odubel Herrera tripled to right and Franco homered to left, the rookie's 11th of the season.

The Cubs scored in the bottom of the first on Kris Bryant's long sacrifice fly and again in the third on Fowler's ninth dinger of the season.

But the Phillies pushed their lead to 6-2 with three runs in the fourth. Cody Asche led off with a triple and Brown and Cameron Rupp hit consecutive RBI doubles. Nola added an RBI single before Hammel was pulled.

Brown stroked a two-run triple in the fifth, Philadelphia's third of the game, Franco hit an RBI double in the sixth and Howard homered in the eighth.

Russell homered off Nola in the eighth.
