Gerrit Cole (33, New York Yankees), who hit 33 home runs in 200 2/3 innings last year, has already continued his streak of 6 games without a home run.

The New York안전놀이터 Yankees had an away game against the Texas Rangers on the 28th (Korean time) at Globe Life Field located in Arlington, Texas, USA.

Cole, who started as a starting pitcher for the New York Yankees that day, threw 92 pitches (69 strikes) in 6 2/3 innings, allowing 6 hits and 2 runs. 8 strikeouts. The average ERA rose slightly to 1.11.

Cole pitched scoreless until the fifth inning. However, Cole allowed the bases loaded crisis safely with two hits and a walk in the sixth inning, and eventually gave up two runs with an infield grounder and an infield hit.

After that, Cole left the mound in the 7th inning with no runners and two out. The New York Yankees had a 3-2 lead by this time. Accordingly, Cole came down the mound in a situation of victory requirements.

What is surprising is that Cole did not hit a home run in the game that day. With that, Cole has not given up a single home run in 34 innings over his past five games.

With this, Cole has hit a home run in 40 2/3 innings so far. It’s a very different look from last year’s 202 2/3 innings and 33 home runs.

As a result, Cole’s home run per 9 innings is currently zero. It’s rare to find a season in which Cole’s home runs per nine innings are less than 1.0. It has happened only once since 2016.

The New York Yankees won 4-2 by holding on to the four runs scored by Cole’s good pitching and DJ LeMayhew’s, Glaber Torres’, and Jose Trevino’s home runs.

As a result, Cole recorded 5 wins and an ERA of 1.11 for the season. In addition, Michael King, who got on the mound after two outs in the 7th inning and recorded no runs in 2 1/3 innings, earned a save.

On the other hand, starting pitcher Andrew Heaney of Texas suffered his second loss of the season despite a quality start with 3 runs in 6 innings as his 2 home runs hit twice.
