Yankees’ Gerrit Cole ‘responded well’ in return from hamstring injury


BALTIMORE — Gerrit Cole made it through five innings in his first outing since leaving with a tight left hamstring in his previous start and was fairly pleased with the results in a 7-2 win over the Orioles at Camden Yards on Tuesday night.

“It responded well,’’ Cole said of his hamstring. “Part of the job as a starting pitcher is to be able to grind.”

Cole pitched with a wrap on his left leg, which he said made it “tough to move around,” especially when covering first base. He plans to modify it before his next outing.

Still, he limited Baltimore to one run in five innings, although he needed 108 pitches, with three walks and seven strikeouts.

“I would have liked to pitch a little deeper,’’ Cole said.
