Gerrit Cole of the Astros allowed two earned runs on six hits and three walks while striking out nine across 5.2 innings to earn the win Sunday against the Angels.
But really that’s not what we will be talking about as he picked up his 13th win. The broadcast team’s mic caught Gerrit Cole absolutely mad as hell at the umpire not giving him a strike call.. and the announcers literally just froze. Listen in. The best part is the announcers literally freezing on air and not know what to say.
Seriously, we should have all players mic’ed up at all times.
To be fair to Gerrit though, that was a strike. And he absolutely cant pitch.
