After dealing with injuries in his last two starts, Cole Hamels returned to the mound on Friday against the Braves, earning his first win of the season. The World Series MVP scattered three hits and two earned runs over six innings of work while striking out seven.

“Everything felt great,” said Hamels after the game. “The floaties really gave me peace of mind out there.”

Joe Blanton will get the start against Javier Vazquez on Saturday for Game 2 in the series. The last time the two pitchers met, the Phils had to crawl their way back to a 12-11 win, which was their first of the year.
