PHILADELPHIA -- Phillies ace Cole Hamels left Thursday's game against the Brewers in the top of the fourth inning after being hit on his left shoulder on a line drive from Prince Fielder.

The injury was listed as a left shoulder contusion.

Hamels entered Thursday 0-1 with an 11.17 ERA in his first two starts.
