The last few weeks were nothing but disappointment for the New York Yankees fans. However, things are finally working for the Yanks ever since Aaron Judge has come back from his injury. Recently, the Yanks beat the Tampa Bay Rays in the latest game and tied the series. But for Gerrit Cole, the situation is not suitable as it should be. Being the starting pitcher, Cole has an immense responsibility to limit the opposition score to the minimum, which is not happening in his case.

Cole started the game on a bright spot but lost steam, putting his team under pressure. It was the effort from Anthony Rizzo, who pulled the Yanks as he hit homers, giving his team the decisive lead against the Rays. Although the Yanks won the game, baseball fans did not hesitate to pull Cole’s lag for his poor outing from the mound.

Even though the Yanks took the maximum points from the game, Gerrit Cole had a forgetful outing. He conceded two home runs in the eighth inning alone. The Yanks’ veteran ace finished the contest with an ERA of 2.2 and four strikeouts. The way the Rays have hit homers on his pitching has put Cole under a lot of pressure and heat.

Talkin ‘Yanks shared a post with the caption, “The Rays know how to hit homers off Gerrit Cole.” Given that Cole also conceded a home run that saw his team lose against the Rays, he was in the headlines. If we see his overall performances during the season, the Rays have certainly dominated the players. During his last five games, he has conceded homers only against the Rays.
