Gerrit Cole strikes out 12 in Pirates loss Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/28/14) Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole didn't factor into the decision Sunday, giving up one earned run on four hits in seven innings while striking out 12, but the Pirates fell 4-1 to the Reds to lose a chance at taking the NL Central title.
Cole did everything he needed to put the Pirates within a half-game of the Cardinals, but the bullpen betrayed the starter after he left the game with the score tied 1-1. The Pirates will face the Giants in the Wild Card game. Cole ends the regular season with a 3.65 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 138:40 K:BB ratio in 138 innings.

|(9/23/14) Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole earned a win Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out eight in his team's 3-2 victory over the Braves.

The win Tuesday clinches a playoff spot for the second straight season. Cole owns a 3.78 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 126:40 K:BB ratio in 131 innings. He's slated to face the Reds in Sunday's season finale.

|(9/18/14) Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole turned in a solid outing in a win over the Red Sox Thursday night, improving to 10-5 on the year. He allowed two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out seven over seven innings of a 3-2 victory.|
Cole has won each of his last three starts. Over that 19-inning stretch, he has allowed eight earned runs. He owns a 3.85 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP over 20 starts (124 innings). His next start will come Tuesday at Atlanta.
Gerrit Cole tosses quality start Friday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/12/14) Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole tossed a quality start Friday against the Cubs.
Cole allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out six and walked one during the outing. Cole was solid early, tossing three scoreless innings to open the game. Home runs wound up being an issue for Cole. In the fourth, Javier Baez opened the inning with a solo shot off Cole. Arismendy Alcantara added his own solo shot in the fifth inning. Cole gave up his third run in the sixth inning. With two men on, he allowed a run-scoring single against Welington Castillo.
With the win, Cole improved to 9-5. He’ll take on the Red Sox in his next start.
Gerrit Cole strikes out eight, belts first homer
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(9/7/14) Earning his first victory since July 4, Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole went six-plus innings in Sunday's 10-4 win over the Cubs. Cole struck out eight and walked none while allowing four runs (three earned) on nine hits.
For good measure, Cole belted his first major-league homer, a two-run shot. Cole (8-5) will face the Cubs again Friday in Pittsburgh.
|2014 summary: To say Gerrit Cole's sophomore season went without a hitch would be inaccurate. After a pedestrian start to the year, he had separate DL stints for shoulder fatigue and a tight lat muscle and made only two starts over the next 2 1/2 months. But he redeemed himself with a 3.44 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 10.3 strikeouts per nine innings in eight starts after returning, taking the step forward many had hoped to see from the beginning.|
Playing time status: Because of the injuries, Cole ended up throwing just 160 1/3 innings, counting is rehab assignments, down from the 196 1/3 he had between the majors, minors and playoffs in 2013. It's reason to wonder if the Pirates would push him to 200 innings in his third season, which, if the progress he made late in 2014 holds, would be the last major hurdle to clear.
2015 outlook: As the first overall pick in the 2011 draft, Cole has the pedigree of an ace and may have taken his first step toward becoming one with his strong finish. In Head-to-Head leagues, he averaged more Fantasy points per start than Jeff Samardzija and Tyson Ross. Of
course, he has more to prove than that illustrious duo, but in terms of upside alone, he's worth drafting among the top 30 starting pitchers.
