Cole improved to 1-0, allowing one run on six hits and four walks in 6.0 innings, as the Washington Nationals defeated the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2 on Saturday. Cole struck out two, ending the game with a 1.50 ERA and 1.67 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Cole, a 25-year-old righty, made seven starts last season for the Nationals and was called up this week when Joe Ross was demoted to Triple-A Syracuse. Cole had to make his first start Saturday because he first had to serve the final three games of a five-game suspension levied last season for throwing at Pittsburgh Pirates third baseman Jung Ho Kang.
