New York, which has more postseason experience, starts a pitcher with significantly more playoff proficiency. Gerrit Cole owns a career, 8-4 record with a 2.75 ERA in 12 postseason starts, striking out 99 batters in 78.2 IP. Tyler Glasnow is 2-2 with a 6.00 ERA in four career postseason starts, with only 18.0 IP. These two met a year ago when Cole was with the Astros in the 2019 ALDS Game 5 matchup. Cole fired eight strong innings to beat Glasnow and the Rays, 5-1. The Rays are 5-11 L16 Divisional Playoff games and 0-4 L4 during game 5 of a series. The Yankees are 5-2 L7 Divisional Playoff games and 36-16 L52 playoff games as a favorite. take New York. Thank you.
