Cy Young candidate RHP Gerrit Cole leads MLB pitchers in strikeouts (302) and owns an active 14-game winning streak, a franchise record and the longest in a single season since RHP Roy Halladay had a 15-game streak in 2003. Cole is just the third pitcher in club history to reach 300 strikeouts. That list also includeds RHP J.R. Richard (1978-79) and RHP Mike Scott (1986), and is just 11 strikeouts shy of tying the club record, set by Richard with 313 strikeouts in 1979.
