Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole put up impressive stats late last year. Can he hold up the whole season?
After unseating the Pittsburgh Pirates for baseball’s best interleague record Monday, the Oakland Athletics hope to improve upon that mark Tuesday night. Dan Straily hopes his success against National League foes continues, too.
Gerrit Cole took a shutout into the seventh inning of his major league debut and hit a two-run single in his first at-bat Tuesday night, leading the Pittsburgh Pirates to an 8-2 victory in front of a festive crowd.
Consider Tuesday’s Giants-Pirates game to be a must-see, as Pittsburgh has called up top prospect Gerrit Cole, who will take the mound and make his major-league debut opposite Tim Lincecum.
