Gerrit Cole is one strikeout away from securing a record that’s been held by Curt Schilling for nearly 20 years.
As of his 12 strikeout and zero walk performance on Wednesday, Cole has struck out 56 batters since his last walk — tying Schilling’s single season mark from 2002.
The record dates back to 1893, when the mound was moved to its current distance from the plate.
Greg Maddux is behind Cole and Schilling at 53 strikeouts without a walk.
Cole should have that chance next Monday when the Yankees face the Texas Rangers on the road.
