Astros' Cole tries to get back on track vs. Indians

Houston Astros starter Gerrit Cole will try to bounce back from the worst start of his career when he takes on the visiting Cleveland Indians and former UCLA teammate Trevor Bauer in the opener of a four-game series on Thursday night.

Cole, who finished fifth in the 2018 American League Cy Young Award voting with an 15-5 record and 2.88 ERA, is off to just a 1-3 start with a 5.22 ERA this season. He allowed nine hits and nine runs (eight earned) in just 4 1/3 innings in a 9-4 loss at Texas on Saturday.

Cole told the Houston Chronicle that he thought that he was tipping his pitches early in the contest and believes he has cleaned up any mechanical tics or indicators that may have helped Rangers hitters.
