I'd rather have 4 quarters than 100 pennies.

He needed that.Cole recovered with a solid outing yesterday against the Astros.
9 inning complete game. 3 hits. 2 BBs. 12 Ks. 0 runs.
A much better mix of his off-speed stuff (change, curve, slider). That's a good sign. Assuming he was using the sticky stuff, this outing shows he's adjusted and is confident throwing those pitches again.
99 mph heater on the 129th pitch of the game to close it out.
He was strong as hell all night. But to win that way against the Astros offense is huge for his confidence going forward.
