Box Score Bits: Kennedy effective again
• Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels looked like his 2008 self Tuesday, tossing eight shutout innings against the St. Louis Cardinals. Alas, with the Phillies' bullpen in tatters, Hamels was left in to start the ninth and allowed two doubles that tied the score. The Phillies won in 10 innings, and Hamels restored hope to his owners with his best 2010 outing.
• New York Yankees reliever Joba Chamberlain earned his second save in as many games Tuesday, fanning two Baltimore Orioles. Chamberlain again filled in for Mariano Rivera, unavailable with stiffness in his left side. If Rivera needs a DL stint, it looks like Chamberlain, owned in 21.3 percent of leagues, can do the job effectively.
