Pirates' Cole wins major-league-leading 12th game as Pittsburgh rallies against Indians

PITTSBURGH -- Down 3-0 after the third inning on the heels of two uneven starts, Gerrit Cole didn't get angry or flustered. Instead, the Pittsburgh ace became dominant. Cole overcame a rocky start for his major league-best 12th win and Andrew McCutchen's two-run double capped a five-run fifth inning as the Pirates rallied past the Cleveland Indians 5-3 Sunday. Cole (12-3) set down...

Cole and a rally

Gerrit Cole picked up his league-leading 12th win on Sunday, even though things weren’t going well for him early on. Sure, if the Pirates hadn’t strung together a huge fifth inning, we’d be talking about a disappointing outing, but you certainly have to give Cole credit for finding another gear and mowing his way through the eighth after the Bucs grabbed the lead. Two eight...

It’s Gerrit Cole night

There’s little to say on nights when Gerrit Cole takes the mound other than that it’s a night that Gerrit Cole is taking the mound and thus it’s worth your while to watch him pitch. The Reds are a mess right now, and the Pirates could use the wins. Mike Leake starts for the Reds, and you’ve seen almost as much of Mike Leake in the last few years as you have of some of the...

This Gerrit Cole two-seam fastball had absurd movement (Video)

In softball they have a pitch called a riseball. This concept actually makes sense in the sport because the pitchers throw underhand and can direct the ball upwards. It’s much different for a baseball pitcher to get similar movement because they obviously throw overhand, but Gerrit Cole is trying to defy those conventions. In the...Read More

WATCH: The Movement Pittsburgh Pirates Pitcher Gerrit Cole Has on This Pitch is Sick

If you have ever wondered why good pitchers are as valued as they are take a look at this pitch by Pittsburgh Pirates starter Gerrit Cole. If it was easy to get a ball to do what he does here while still throwing it incredibly hard (98 miles per hour) than maybe--just maybe--pitchers would not make as much as they do.But it is not. So they do (and they deserve it). 98 with movement...

Sunday morning: Gerrit Cole (like I need to say more)

Starting a sentence with “the most impressive thing about Gerrit Cole thus far in 2015 is…” is a good way to get yourself into trouble quickly, as the list of impressive things that Cole has done to this point is as long as Cole is tall. After watching him pitch yesterday, though, certainly one thing that he’s done this year that’s really stood out is the way that he’s...
