Gerrit Cole breaks down big start in Boston, Wild Card picture


The Yankees needed Gerrit Cole to pitch like his ace self on Friday, and save for one mistake to Rafael Devers, he showed up in a big way, helping New York claim a statement 8-3 win.

The victory also pulled Cole and the Yankees to within one game of Boston for the top Wild Card spot, and one step closer to potentially having Cole on the mound in the Bronx for a winner-take-all playoff game, rather than on the road. While that is the goal for Cole, it’s not the current focus.
