Pittsburgh Pirates' Gerrit Cole Takes the loss Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gerrit Cole was tagged for four runs on six hits over five innings while striking out four and walking one in a losing effort against the Cubs on Wednesday night.

Dexter Fowler and Kyle Schwarber did all of the damage, going a combined 5-for-7 and working in tandem to plate all four runs on a pair of homers and an RBI single from Schwarber in the top of the first inning. The outing pushed Cole's career postseason ERA to 3.94 through three starts (16 innings). Cole's 2015 campaign was his best as a big leaguer, however, as he reached the 200 strikeouts milestone for the first time, and posted a 2.60 ERA while racking up 208 innings over 32 starts for the Bucs.

Pirates SP Gerrit Cole strikes out eight in brilliant effort Friday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Pirates starter Gerrit Cole won his 18th game Friday afternoon, allowing one run on four hits, walking two and striking out eight over seven innings of 3-2 win against the Cubs.

Cole (18-8, 2.60 ERA) continues his spectacular season. His WHIP dropped a bit (now 1.09) and he hit the 200 strikeout mark (in 201 innings) with his eighth punchout. The Pirates have good pitching, with more talent on the way, but Cole is clearly the ace they were looking for when they drafted him first overall in 2011.

Pirates SP Gerrit Cole handed no decision in Game 1 win Tuesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Pirates starter Gerrit Cole pitched well against the Cubs in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader. Cole allowed four runs--three earned--on six hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out eight and did not walk a batter in the 5-4 win.

Cole gave up an unearned run in the top of the first, but the Pirates responded with three of their own in the bottom half. But, after the Pirates added another run, Cole ran into trouble in the seventh.

He was able to strike Kris Bryant out to start the inning, before allowing three straight hits leading to a run. Cole was lifted from the game with the Pirates leading 4-2 and runners on second and third. Both of those runners came in to score on a pair of wild pitches, which effecitvely took Cole out of the final decision.

This outing does count as a quality start, making it his fourth such performance in his last five starts.

Report: Pirates SP Gerrit Cole to have Thursday start skipped
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

An effort to limit innings will keep Pirates ace Gerrit Cole from making his scheduled start Thursday, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. A.J. Burnett, who is returning from a stint on the disabled list, will pitch instead.

Cole has thrown a career-high 180 2/3 innings. But they have, for the most part, been wonderful innings. He is 16-8 with a 2.54 ERA and 175 strikeouts.

The right-hander will likely start next Tuesday in a doubleheader against the Cubs.
