Four Philadelphia pitchers combined for the 12th no-hitter in team history Monday as the Phillies shutout the Braves 7-0 in Atlanta.

It was the first combined no-hitter in the teams’ history. Cole Hamels went the first six innings striking out seven and walking five. After that Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon each pitched one perfect inning to complete the gem.

The Braves have struggled mightily at the plate lately scoring only one run over the last three days.

Clayton Kershaw and Josh Beckett of the Dodgers and Tim Lincecum of the Giants each threw no-hitter earlier this year.
