Gerrit Cole Enters Matchup With Red Sox In Middle Of Historic Stretch

Gerrit Cole is a machine.

The New York Yankees ace enters Friday night’s series opener against the Boston Red Sox a winner in each of his last 19 decisions dating back to last season. If Cole is able to secure his 20th-straight winning decision, he would become the sixth pitcher to do so in Major League Baseball history.

Over his last 26 starts — 19 decisions — Cole’s tossed an impressive 169 innings while striking out 252 batters to go along with a 1.97 ERA.

Cole’s 3-0 so far this season with a 3.22 ERA and 26 strikeouts across 22 1/3 innings pitched.
