It was a momentous Wednesday night for round numbers at Minute Maid Park.

Three hundred strikeouts for Gerrit Cole, the first Astros pitcher to achieve that feat since Mike Scott in 1986.

Thirty home runs for Yuli Gurriel, the third man to 30 for an Astros team that continues to extend its franchise record for long balls.

One hundred wins for the Astros, who clinched a playoff berth and reduced their magic number to two to clinch the American League West title in a 3-2 win over the Rangers.

For good measure, the win also gave the Astros a 9-0 record at home against the Rangers, who have been transformed from tormentors to marks in the Astros’ remarkable turnaround from three consecutive 100-loss seasons (2011-13) to three straight 100-win campaigns.
The Astros joined the Yankees (2002-04), Braves (1997-99), Orioles (1969-71), Cardinals (1942-44) and Philadelphia Athletics (1929-31) as the only MLB teams to win 100 games in three consecutive seasons.

This signature win came in characteristic fashion for the 2019 Astros: overwhelming pitching, courtesy of Cole, who struck out nine in seven innings to run his season total to 302, and relentless power, with home runs from Gurriel and Jose Altuve to account for all three Houston runs.

Cole, who is 14-0 over his past 20 starts and has not lost since May 27, allowed six hits in eight innings and struck out 10 with one walk.

Rangers designated hitter Shin Soo-Choo was Cole’s eighth strikeout victim of the night and his 300th of the year to end the sixth inning. He added two more before giving way to closer Roberto Osuna in the ninth inning.

As the Minute Maid Park crowd rose to its feet to salute Cole as he reached 300, the righthander raised his gloved left hand in salute to each corner of the ballpark and tapped his right hand to his chest as he walked into the dugout.

For the second straight night, a member of one of the best pitching tandems in all baseball history overcame poor run support to get the Astros even closer to a playoff berth.

Tonight Gerrit Cole completed eight innings, allowed just two runs with six hits and a walk, and fanned ten Mall Cops. He surpassed 300 strikeouts, the only pitcher in the majors to break that threshold, and the first Astro since Mike Scott in 1986.

Cole has thrown seven games in a row with 10 Ks or more, and a total of 19 for the season. He has now gone 20 games in a row without a loss, winning 14 of those games. During that streak he has had a 1.85 ERA, a WHIP of 0.82, and a phenomenal K% 40.3%. With that overpowering dominance, his BB% is only 5.9%, striking out almost 7 Xs as many batters as he has walked.

Yuli Gurriel hit a two-run homer behind Yordan Alvarez’ single in the fifth to break a scoreless tie. It was his thirtieth home run, joining Alex Bregman and George Springer in the 30 club for the Astros. This is only the second Astros team to have three 30 home run players in a season.

Jose Altuve’s home run in the 7th, a 400 foot+ monster to the opposite field, his 29th, leaves the Astros just one home run short of having a record four 30+ home run hitters.

But more importantly, the Astros won their 100th game tonight, their 3rd season in a row to reach that level. Only five other teams have had that many consecutive 100 game seasons.

Furthermore, the Astros clinched at least a Wild-Card berth, and their magic number to clinch the AL West is only two games. With a Yankees loss tonight, the Astros are now one game ahead of the Yankees for home field advantage throughout the AL playoffs. They are also a game and a half in front of the Dodgers.

The Astros are off tomorrow, before taking on the Angels for three games this weekend.

The Rangers, however, did not go down quietly. Trailing 2-0, Willie Calhoun singled in the seventh, went to third on a base hit by Danny Santana and scored on Astros catcher Martin Maldonado’s throwing error as Santana stole second. Cole, however, retired Nick Solak on a groundout and Roughned Odor on a fly out to end the inning.

Altuve’s seventh-inning home run gave Houston a 3-1 lead, but the Rangers got the run back on Ronald Guzman’s leadoff homer in the top of the eighth.

Cole allowed a one-out single to Jose Trevino and walked Choo but struck out Elvis Andrus and retired Calhoun on a liner to right to quell the threat and wrap up his night.

Osuna allowed a hit and a walk in the ninth but struck out Odor and got Guzman to hit into a double play to end the game.

The Astros had baserunners in each of the first five innings and loaded the bases in the second and third but came up empty each time against lefthander Kolby Allard (4-1), who walked four through five innings with no consequences.

In the second, Gurriel walked with two out and went to third when Rangers third baseman Solak overthrew second attempting to force Gurriel on a grounder by Aledmys Diaz. Maldonado walked to load the bases, but George Springer grounded out to end the inning.

In the third, Michael Brantley, who drew a first-inning walk, was hit by a pitch with one out and moved up a base on an Alex Bregman base hit. Gurriel reached with two out when Solak couldn’t handle his sharply hit grounder to third, but Kyle Tucker flied out to end the inning.

The Astros finally broke through in the fifth with a two-out base hit by Yordan Alvarez and Gurriel’s home run into the Crawford Boxes.

While the Astros struggled at the plate, their defense again came through for Cole in the early innings.

Tucker, who got the start in right field, leaped at the wall to take a home run away from Scott Heineman in the third inning.

In the fourth, Tucker tracked down Calhoun’s base hit down the first base line as it bounced off the right field wall, uncorking a high throw that shortstop Bregman dragged down in time to tag out Calhoun.
