(670 The Score) Cubs left-hander Cole Hamels has been named the National League Pitcher of the Month for August.

The 34-year-old Hamels went 4-0 with a 0.69 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in six starts in August. He was acquired by the Cubs from the Rangers in late July. 

Included in Hamels' standout month was a complete-game win in a 7-1 victory against the Reds on Aug. 23. It was the Cubs' first complete game of the season and came at a desirable time, as Chicago was and still is amid a stretch of 23 days without an off day.
