Cole Hamels Pitches No-Hitter at Wrigley; Four Rescued in Wildwood; Point Breeze Pop-Up Reopens

Philadelphia Phillies ace RHP Cole Hamels threw a no-hitter Saturday afternoon against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. The Phillies won 5-0. Cole threw 129 pitches with 13 K's and 2 BB's. This was the 13th no-hitter in Phillies' history and Hamels' first solo effort. He was part of a combined no-hitter on September 1st, 2014 vs. the Atlanta Braves along with Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and closer Jonathan Papelbon. It was the first solo no-no thrown by a Phillie since Roy Halladay vs. the Cincinnati Reds in the NLDS on October 6, 2010. C Carlos Ruiz has now tied the MLB record for no-hitters caught at 4. The Chicago Cubs have not been no hit in 50 years. The last time came when Sandy Koufax threw a perfect game on September 9th, 1965. The last time a no-hitter happened at Wrigley field was 43 years ago on September 2nd, 1972 vs. the San Diego Padres with Milt Pappas on the mound. With the trade deadline fast approaching on Friday, this could be Hamel's last mound appearance in a Phillies uniform. Quite a way to leave an impression.

Watch video of the last out:

Four members of a family had to be rescued from the ocean in Wildwood, NJ on Saturday morning. The family came to the beach early and went swimming sometime before lifeguards were on duty at 10:00 a.m. As the guards were coming onto the beach they responded to calls for help from other beach patrons and were able to go into the water and bring the four people back. Two of them, a male and female, were conscious. A second male was semi-conscious. A third male was unconscious when brought onto the beach. Lifeguards performed CPR and were able to resuscitate him. All four were taken to Cape Regional Medical Center. They were aged 15 – 30. No word on their current conditions but they are expected to survive. Wildwood Beach Patrol Captain Ed Schneider reinforced, “The bottom line is,” he says, “when life guards are not on duty, people should not enter the water.”

Point Breeze Pop-Up Beer Garden reopened on Saturday afternoon after a series of recent shutdowns. The Thurs-Sun pop-up is located on an empty lot at 1622 Point Breeze Avenue in the Point Breeze neighborhood of South Philadelphia. Developer John Longacre has been tangling with L+I over zoning issues. He had already obtained the required liquor license from the PLCB to operate the seasonal/temporary beer garden. Prior to Longacre owning the lot, it was a blighted eyesore filled with trash, drug baggies, syringes, bullet casings, etc. for decades. While there is a lot of support in the neighborhood for the new local hangout, Point Breeze has a strong vocal contingent that is against anything deemed gentrification. Whether that is having influence on L+I's decision to shut down Point Breeze Pop-Up recently is not known. Most of the city's other pop-up beer gardens have been well received since the PLCB loop hole was first widely exploited last summer. PHS Pop Up Garden, Spruce Street Harbor Park, Independence Beer Garden, and The Oval are just a few that are thriving. For more information go to:
