ARIZONA – Cole Hamels is ending his first Cubs camp with a bang.
The 35-year-old southpaw hit the links with Anthony Rizzo and Jon Lester Sunday, draining his first hole-in-one before the round was over.
Hamels kept his sweet swing going against the Red Sox Monday night, launching a solo shot on to the berm in dead center.
He hit a home run during the regular season last year, too.
Hamels wasn’t bad on the mound either in 2018. In just 12 starts with the Cubs, he racked up a 4-3 record, a 2.36 ERA, 74 strikeouts and one complete game.
