    • Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans 12 in win
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole (15-5) earned the win in Friday's game against the the Angels. He allowed three earned runs, six hits and no walks over seven innings with 12 strikeouts. Cole was dominant in the victory, throwing 71 of his 102 pitches for strikes. It was the eighth time this season that Cole has stuck out more than 10 batters in a start, and his strikeout numbers continue to remain elite (272 strikeouts over 194.1 innings in 2018). He owns an impressive 2.92 ERA (2.98 xFIP) on the season, and he'll likely make one more appearance in the regular season before the Astros begin postseason play.

    • Astros' Gerrit Cole: Start pushed to Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole is scheduled to start Friday against the Angels, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports. Cole was originally lined up to pitch Tuesday against the Mariners, but it appears the Astros want to give the right-hander a few extra days of rest before his next start in order to keep him fresh for the playoffs. Josh James will take his spot in the rotation Tuesday.

    • Astros' Gerrit Cole: Gets win No. 14
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole (14-5) allowed two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out nine to pick up the win against Detroit on Wednesday. Cole labored in this one, throwing first-pitch strikes to just 13 of 23 batters, needing 99 pitches to get his five innings. He expended 50 of those pitches in the second and third innings. He hung in long enough for Houston's bats to give him a lead when he left, enabling him to claim his third win in his last four starts. He's next scheduled to pitch Tuesday at home against the Mariners.

    • Astros' Gerrit Cole: Fans eight in no-decision
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-3 win over the Red Sox, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings while striking out eight. Despite delivering only his second quality start in seven outings since the beginning of August, Cole was in line for his sixth loss of the season before the Astros' offense finally broke through against David Price in the top of the seventh inning. The right-hander will carry a 2.86 ERA into his next start Wednesday in Detroit.

    • Astros' Gerrit Cole: Strikes out nine
      By RotoWire Staff

      Cole (13-5) allowed two earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out nine across 5.2 innings to earn the win Sunday against the Angels. Cole turned in another strong start, relying on 20 swinging strikes to push ahead of teammate Justin Verlander for second in the majors with 243 punchouts. He was limited to a relatively short outing thanks to a 27-pitch third inning followed by a 25-pitch effort in the fourth inning, though it didn't stop him from recording his 13th win of the season. All in all, it was another strong outing for Cole, and he remains among the league's best in nearly every pitching category. The right-hander's next start will be Friday on the road against the Red Sox.
