Starter Cole Hamels and his Philadelphia Phillies' bullpen tossed a combined no-hitter with a 7-0 shutout of the Atlanta Braves on Monday. The left-handed Hamels struck out seven batters in six innings before the bullpen took over for the first combined no-hitter in the Major League Baseball team's history. Philadelphia ace Hamels had five walks and a high pitch count, forcing manager Ryne Sandberg to remove him for a pinch-hitter in the top of the seventh inning. Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon preserved the no-hitter, each throwing a solid inning out of the bullpen.

It is time to change our laws to match this new reality," said Barton, who represents Texas' sixth Congressional district just southwest of Dallas, several hundred miles from the burgeoning oil patches of the Eagle Ford and Permian. "I'm in favor of overturning the ban on crude oil exports." Barton chairs the energy task force of the Republican Study Committee, which will continue to debate the ban and issue position papers.
