• Ron Cook: Gerrit Cole makes early exit in a pitch for caution

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Jul 5, 2014
    Gerrit Cole played catch and appeared to be fine the day after he left a start after five innings and 80 pitches with right lat soreness. "It just got a little tight," Cole said Friday night. Cole was scheduled to start again Wednesday in St. Louis. Cole was removed from the game by manager Clint Hurdle after just 80 pitches because of what the team called "right lat soreness." That was the best news from a game in which surging Jordy Mercer drove in four runs and Andrew McCutchen continued his MVP-caliber play by coming within about 8 feet of hitting the home run he needed for just the second cycle by a Pirates hitter in Pittsburgh in 65 years.
