Gerrit Cole second-fastest to 200 strikeouts in a season

Astros starter Gerrit Cole dominated the Athletics on Monday night, limiting them to one run on two hits and a walk while striking out 11. It marked his 12th start out of 22 this season with double-digit strikeouts, giving him 205 total on the season.

For those of you who want a demonstration as for what the strikeout boom has wrought….

From the article, it's the second fastest to reach 200 in terms of innings pitched. I'm not sure why the start of a season makes it especially interesting- it's just as impressive to strike out 200 in the last or middle 130 innings of the season. He's not on pace to break any seasonal records.

Figured it was something like that. In 1973 Ryan had 233 strikeouts by this date (actually by 7/19), in 199 innings.

Randy Johnson (in 2001) is the only player to get to 200 strikeouts in fewer innings than Cole this year. He broke that milestone on the Fourth of July and as TFA stated it only took him 130.2 innings.

The other days the Big Unit broke 200 strikeouts:
1991 - September 18, 177.1 innings
1992 - September 16, 185 innings
1993 - August 8, 168.2 innings
1994 - August 11, 169 innings
1995 - August 11, 143 innings
1997 - July 24, 148.1 innings
1998 - July 22, 150.1 innings
1999 - July 5, 145.2 innings
2000 - July 15, 145.2 innings
2002 - July 26, 163 innings
2004 - August 15, 176.2 innings
2005 - September 21, 211 innings
