Anderson (9-1) allowed a run on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts in 6.1 innings, earning the win Saturday over the Padres. Anderson had a rough go against the Rockies in his last start, and he'd allowed four runs in three of his previous four outings before righting the ship Saturday. The damage on his line came from a Trent Grisham sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. The 32-year-old southpaw has been good in 2022 overall with a 3.09 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 73:15 K:BB across 84.1 innings, though the recent results have been somewhat mixed. He'll look to build off this successful start when he makes his next projected start versus the Cubs next week.
Anderson (8-1) took the loss against Colorado on Monday, allowing four runs on 10 hits and one walk while striking out two over six innings. Anderson allowed a single run in each of the first and second innings before serving up a two-run homer to Jose Iglesias in the sixth. That was more than enough for Colorado to hand him his first loss of the campaign, as opposing pitcher Chad Kuhl pitched the first individual complete-game shutout against Los Angeles in six years. Despite the loss, Anderson helped his team by completing six innings, thus taking the load off a recently taxed bullpen. The left-hander has fallen back a bit of late, but he still has good numbers on the season, including a 3.23 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 1.5 BB/9 over 78 innings.
Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 8-4 win over the Reds, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits and a walk over five innings. He struck out two. The veteran lefty got tagged for three runs in the second inning to put the Dodgers in an early hole, but the game was tied by the time Anderson exited and Los Angeles pulled away late. He tossed 58 of 81 pitches for strikes, but he got hit hard as four of the five hits off him went for extra bases, including an Albert Almora solo shot in the fifth. Anderson still carries an unblemished 8-0 record on the season with a dazzling 3.00 ERA and 0.97 WHIP, but he's showing signs of slowing down. He has a 4.41 ERA over his last three outings that nearly matches his 4.45 career mark.
Anderson (8-0) earned the win during Wednesday's 4-1 victory against the Angels, allowing one run on one hit and two walks with eight strikeouts in 8.1 innings. Following a poor outing against the White Sox in his last start, Anderson surrendered a one-out Shohei Ohtani triple in the ninth inning to lose a no-hitter and was subsequently pulled at 123 pitches. In total, the 32-year-old permitted six baserunners and was able to stay course with the help of 17 straight outs during the middle innings. Additionally, the eight strikeouts match the southpaw's season best while the 83 game score eclipses that of eight shutout innings he posted against Washington on May 23. Anderson's eight wins tie him with three others for the MLB lead and he'll look to keep pace when he's expected to take the mound again next week against Cincinnati.
Anderson allowed four earned runs on four hits and three walks while striking out two across three innings Thursday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision. Anderson surrendered one earned run through three innings, but he allowed the first four batters he faced in the fourth frame to reach base to sour his outing. He didn't allow a home run, though he was uncharacteristically wild as he had allowed only six walks across 55.2 innings on the season entering Thursday's start. The outing also snapped a 20-frame scoreless stretch for Anderson, though he still owns a strong 3.07 ERA on the campaign.
