CHICAGO -- Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels threw a no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs Saturday in a 5-0 win.

Hamels struck out 13 and walked two Saturday.

Center fielder Odubel Herrera made a long run to catch David Ross' one-out flyball in the eighth, tumbling on the warning track in front of the ivy on the wall after making the grab. Herrera also recorded the last out in the 9th on a tumbling catch.

The Phillies won 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 Sandy Koufax pitched a perfect game against them in 1965.
