Cole Improves To 3-0, Besting Strasburg's Start 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Jun 22, 2013 12:57 pm

Gerrit Cole beat the Angels on Friday night, giving him three wins in his first three starts for the Pirates.

Cole has now bested Jered Weaver, Tim Lincecum and Zack Greinke.

"That's like $400 million worth of pitching," Cole said. "We've just been scoring runs and giving me a chance."

Ben McDonald won in his first five starts in 1990, but Cole has moved into second place on the all-time No. 1 pick list. Stephen Strasburg won his first two starts in 2010.
