Anderson (11-4) was stuck with the loss Sunday despite holding the Cubs to three runs on seven hits and a walk across 6.1 innings. He struck out eight. Although the hit count was high, Anderson did what he could to keep the Brewers in it all afternoon. He wound up getting the short end of the stick after hanging a few too many curveballs in the fourth inning and serving up a two-run homer to Ben Zobrist in the seventh. Anderson's ERA for the season is a stellar 2.81, and his K:BB during the month of September is a solid 27:6. With the Brewers gunning for the final playoff spot in the National League, Anderson will try to get back in the win column when he takes on the Cardinals during the final series of the regular season.
Anderson (11-3) tossed six scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Pirates, allowing five hits with no walks and eight strikeouts. Anderson was in the strike zone at a 66 percent clip, including first-pitch strikes to 15 of 23 batters faced. He induced just two goundball outs, but he consistently induced weak contact, which he supplemented with his second-best strikeout total of the season. Anderson has been particularly sharp of late, allowing just one earned run across 16.1 innings over his last three starts. He will take a sterling 2.74 ERA into Sunday's start against the Cubs.
Anderson (10-3) allowed two runs -- one earned -- on seven hits and a walk while striking out two batters through 5.1 innings during Wednesday's win over Pittsburgh. Considering Anderson was pitching on just three days rest, this was another excellent outing from the righty. He now boasts an impressive 2.84 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 27:12 K/BB over six starts since returning from the disabled list. It's also worth noting that he hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his past 13 outings. Anderson projects to make his next start against the Pirates at PNC Park.
Anderson will start Wednesday against the Pirates. The right-hander will toe the rubber on just three days' rest, but he only threw 67 pitches over five innings in his last start, so his arm should be pretty fresh. Anderson has posted a 3.08 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 25:11 K:BB in five starts since his return from an oblique injury (26.1 innings).
Anderson (9-3) allowed no runs on one hit and one walk while striking out five across five innings to earn the victory Saturday against the Cubs. Anderson had an 11-run lead and was removed from the contest after firing just 67 pitches. He's held opponents to three or fewer earned runs in each of his starts since May 21, and with a 2.93 ERA on the season, he's been an outstanding fantasy option. He'll make his next start Friday against the Marlins.
