Welcome to the history books, Gerrit Cole.

The Houston Astros right-hander became just the 18th pitcher in Major League Baseball history to notch 300 strikeouts in a season during Wednesday’s 3-2 win over the Texas Rangers, per ESPN.com. He struck out 10 batters while allowing just two earned runs and six hits in eight innings of work.

The 300th strikeout came in the sixth inning when he retired Shin-Soo Choo for his eighth punch-out of the game.
