Gerrit Cole (32, New York Yankees) is running for the first time since his debut.
Cole started the game against the Texas Rangers at Globe Live Field in Arlington, Texas on the 27th (local time).
New York fans focused their attention on Cole’s mound that day, as he is currently competing in a video competition with Shohei Ohtani (28, Los Angeles Angels) in the American League.
Cole did not disappoint fans. He allowed a double to Nathaniel Rowe (27) with two outs in the first inning, but ended the inning by handling Adolis Garcia (30) as a fly ball. Even in the second inning, he was hit by Ezequiel Duran (23), but finished the inning without allowing a run.
In the 3rd inning, he was hit with a double by Marcus Semien (32) and was driven to a one-run second base crisis, but he overcame the crisis by handling Robbie Grossman (33) and Lowe, who were at bat, with a hit. He continued pitching scoreless in the fourth and fifth innings, recording a three-way offense.
He was driven to the bases crisis with no hits and walks in the 6th inning, and after that, he allowed RBIs to Jonah Haim (27) and Duran and finished the pitching with 2 runs. His final performance was 6.2 innings, 6 hits, 1 walk, 8 strikeouts and 2 runs.
Afterwards, the team conceded no more runs and won 4-2.
Cole is currently fighting well with 5 wins in 40.2 innings and an ERA of 1.11. Some local fans are observing that if he maintains this momentum, he will be able to receive a Cy video. He placed second in video polls between 2019 and 2021, but has never won an award. Last year, he hit 33 home runs and was nicknamed the ‘home run factory manager’.먹튀검증
Ohtani, his strongest competitor, raised his earned run average to 1.85 with 3 hits, 2 homers, 2 walks, 3 walks, 8 strikeouts and 5 runs in 6 innings against Oakland that day.
Local fans are paying attention to whether Cole will be able to continue cruising for his debut video.
