Gerrit Cole lets his second ALDS gem do the talking

CLEVELAND – It is a shame that, however well Gerrit Cole launched in an unmissable game 4 of the American League Division Series, the Yankees won 4–2, the most memorable image will be of his only mistake.

The score was 3-1 at the bottom of the fourth inning when Cole left a 97 mph four-seater on the plate. Guardians designated hitter Josh Naylor crushed him to 405 feet on the right court for a solo home run. The ball had just landed before Naylor started celebrating by pretending to cradle a baby as he turned to first base. He briefly placed the baby around second base, then picked him up again from third base, at which point he seemed to yell, towards the Cleveland bench, “This is my little f —— son!”
