Cole earned his 10th win of the season Thursday by throwing seven strong innings against Boston. He allowed two runs and six hits, while striking out seven.
After making quality starts against the Cubs in his last two appearances, Cole fared well against a struggling Red Sox offense. He's made five quality starts in six tries since coming off the disabled list in late August, although that is a little deceiving, given that he's posted a 3.99 ERA during that period. On a positive note, he has a sparkling 40:9 K:BB ratio during that stretch, a span of 38.1 innings. The young righty is scheduled to make two road starts next week against Atlanta and Cincinnati.
