In a game where he looked impressive, but didn’t have the results to show for it, New York Yankees Gerrit Cole made some franchise history.
The Yankees lost 6-4 to the Baltimore Orioles and Cole somehow allowed five earned runs.
But he also didn’t walk anyone and knocked out the 11 O’s heater.
Many people say that the real indicator of determining the dominance of a pitcher is its BB / K ratio, and Cole is elite.
Logging a game without walking and without at least 10 punches is something that only truly talented pitchers often do.
“Tonight was Gerrit Cole’s seventh start as a Yankee with a 10+ strikeout and zero walk. It’s tied up with Mike Mussina for the most part # Yankees History of suffrage. Cole has already set that franchise record with just 51 wins over New York, “tweeted Max Goodman of SI.com.

He set the record at an impressive rate
Mussina has played eight seasons with the Yankees: just two of Cole (one of which has lasted only 60 games) and the first month and a half of the 2022 campaign.
It’s really amazing how he has already set a franchise record in the hands of a pitcher who has played more than twice as many seasons as he has with the Yankees.
But Cole is known for his influential ways.
For the season, the right-hander has a 3.31 ERA and a better 2.97 fielding independent pitching or FIP.
He made just 12 walks and hit 62 hitters.
Cole is determined to get there and win the American League Sai Young Award in 2021, when Robbie Ray took the honor.
If he restricts free passes and submits strikeouts, he will be able to do so.
