Martedì, in the win-or-go-home wildcard game in a showdown against their biggest rivals, Cole came up small. Entering the game, Cole had a 1-3 record with a 7.00 ERA in four starts at Fenway Park, but the Yankees expected their ace to live up to what they paid him to do.

Cole allowed three runs on four hits and only lasted two innings in New York’s 6-2 perdita per il Boston Red Sox. He gave up a two-run homer to Xander Bogaerts in the bottom of the first inning and later surrendered a solo shot to Kyle Schwarber in the third just before he was taken out.
