CHICAGO — of the Philadelphia Phillies is pitching a no-hitter through eight innings against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Hamels has struck out 12 and walked two Saturday. He has thrown 112 pitches.

Center fielder made a long run to catch ' one-out flyball in the eighth, tumbling on the warning track in front of the ivy on the wall after making the grab.

The Phillies lead 5-0.

Hamels has been the subject of trade talk with the July 31 dealing deadline less than a week away. The 31-year-old lefty was the MVP of the 2008 World Series.

Hamels combined with three relievers on a no-hitter at Atlanta last Sept. 1. He pitched six innings in that game, then left on a hot afternoon at Turner Field.

The Cubs have not been held hitless since pitched a perfect game against them in 1965.
