Cole joined Tom Seaver as the only pitchers in Major League history to strike out at least 12 batters in a playoff game without a walk. Seaver whiffed 13 Reds with no walks in Game 1 of the 1973 National League Championship Series for the Mets 45 years ago to the day.

"I'm pretty thrilled with the no walks," Cole said. "Baserunners in postseason games are kind of tough to deal with at times. Sometimes the walk is needed. But Maldonado was just dropping down the right signs, and we were just pounding the zone. Pretty special day."
