Red Sox Drop Fifth Straight Game to Cole and Yankees

Michael Chavis

Gerrit Cole posted his 20th straight regular-season win, becoming the sixth pitcher to ever reach the mark by throwing seven sharp innings to lead the New York Yankees over the Boston Red Sox 10-3. A noted Yankees fan growing up in Southern California, Cole improved to 4-0 in his first season with New York. He allowed one run and four hits in his first taste of the storied rivalry in front of empty seats. He struck out eight, walked none and threw 95 pitches. Cole moved closer to the all-time record of 24 consecutive victories by Carl Hubbell. Roy Face is next at 22, followed by Roger Clemens, Jake Arrieta and Cole at 20 each.
