Houston Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole continued to amaze the baseball world Tuesday, collecting 14 strikeouts in his second-last regular-season start of the season. Cole’s 20th start with double-digit strikeouts tied the all-time MLB record, as he joined Randy Johnson, Nolan Ryan, and Sandy Koufax as the only pitchers in history to accomplish the feat. The game also marked the eighth straight in which the 29-year-old has punched out at least 10 batters, which also ties a league record co-owned by Chris Sale (2015, 2017) and Pedro Martinez (1999).
Eduardo Rodriguez labored through five innings to get his 19th win, allowing more runs than he had in his previous seven starts combined, and the Boston Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 12-10 on Tuesday. Game 2 of the series is tonight at 7:05 pm.
The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed wide receiver Laquon Treadwell four weeks after parting ways with the former first-round pick. The move reflects concerns the Vikings have about their wide receiver depth after Chad Beebe was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. He suffered torn ligaments in his ankle during Sunday’s 34-14 win over the Oakland Raiders and is not expected to undergo surgery.
The New England Patriots, who are one of the few teams in the NFL to still feature the fullback position, sustained a blow to their offense Monday when James Develin was placed on injured reserve. Develin, who was the AFC’s fullback in the 2017 Pro Bowl, had suffered a neck injury in the team’s Week 2 victory over Miami. The Patriots promoted fullback Jakob Johnson from the practice squad Saturday.
