Braves-Phillies Preview

(AP) -- With Cole Hamels' storied tenure over in Philadelphia, the path is clear for highly touted Aaron Nola to push toward becoming the Phillies' No. 1 starter.

Nola will try to continue that work Saturday night when he pitches opposite Atlanta Braves prospect Matt Wisler.

Hamels concluded his 10 seasons in Philadelphia, an era that included winning the 2008 World Series MVP and a no-hitter last Saturday, with a trade to Texas on Friday. With their NL-worst 40-64 record, the Phillies have started rebuilding for the future, and Nola has the potential to play a significant role.
