Anderson didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 10-7 extra-inning loss to the Giants, giving up two runs on three hits while striking out five over five innings. The right-hander pounded the zone, throwing 60 of 81 pitches for strikes before hitting the showers, but a Josh Hader blown save cost Anderson a shot at his fifth win. No-decisions are par for the course for him, though -- he's just 1-1 over his last seven starts and has completed six innings only once all season. Anderson will take a 4.27 ERA and 72:23 K:BB over 71.2 innings into his next outing Wednesday, at home against Atlanta.
Anderson allowed two runs on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts across four innings during a no-decision against the Pirates on Sunday. The right-hander was on the hook for a loss until the Brewers tied the game in the seventh. Anderson avoided the defeat, but he's still just 1-2 with a 5.29 ERA in his last seven starts. Overall, he is 4-2 with a 4.32 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 67 strikeouts in 66.2 innings across 17 appearances, including 12 starts this season.
Anderson allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out two across 5.2 innings of work Tuesday against the Reds. He did not factor into the decision. Anderson surrendered a two-run home run to Eugenio Suarez in the first inning. However, he shut the door thereafter, allowing only three hits across his final 4.2 innings of work. Despite pitching for one of the better teams in the National League, Anderson has lacked the chance for wins, managing to work more than five innings only three times in his past 10 starts. Still, he's struck out 63 batters across 62.2 innings while also maintaining a respectable 4.31 ERA and 1.29 WHIP. He'll draw the Brewers' final start prior to the All-Star break on Sunday against the Pirates.
Anderson (4-2) earned the win against Seattle on Thursday, tossing 5.1 innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and one walk while striking out six. It was a nice bounce-back performance for Anderson, who gave up a season-high six runs in his previous start against Cincinnati. He breezed through the first five innings but was pulled from the game after an error and a double resulted in a run in the sixth. Still, it was an overall positive outing for Anderson, who picked up his first win in June and fourth overall this season. He'll carry a 4.42 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 9.6 K/9 into his next start in Cincinnati on Tuesday.
Anderson (3-2) took the loss Friday as the Brewers fell 11-7 to the Reds, coughing up six runs on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out six. It was by far the right-hander's worst outing of the year, but it continued a stretch of poor performances. Over his last six starts, Anderson has stumbled to a 6.43 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 1.9 HR/9 despite a solid 30:8 K:BB over 28 innings during that stretch. He'll try to turn things around Thursday in a home start against the Mariners.
