      Braves' Ian Anderson: Tosses gem in playoff debut

      Ian Anderson picked up the win in Game 2 of the NL Wild Card Round against the Reds on Thursday, striking out nine while walking two and allowing just two hits over six scoreless innings.The stage certainly didn't look too large for the 22-year-old in his playoff debut, which was also just his seventh start at the big-league level. He did load the bases in the second inning on a single and a pair of walks, but that was the only time he allowed a runner to even reach second base. He's certainly earned a start in the NLDS against either the Cubs or Marlins.

      Braves' Ian Anderson: Let down by defense

      Ian Anderson (3-2) took the loss Thursday as Atlanta fell 4-2 to the Marlins, giving up three unearned runs on seven hits over 5.2 innings. He struck out six without walking a batter.The rookie took a shutout into the sixth inning, but an error by Adeiny Hechavarria to lead off the frame proved costly when Miami staged a two-out rally. Anderson closes out the regular season with an impressive 1.95 ERA and 41:14 K:BB through his first 32.1 big-league innings, and he should be a big part of Atlanta's rotation plans in the playoffs.

      Braves' Ian Anderson: Fans eight in first loss

      Ian Anderson (3-1) took the loss Saturday, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks over 4.2 innings as Atlanta was downed 7-2 by the Mets. He struck out eight.The strikeouts salvaged some fantasy value for the rookie, but otherwise this was Anderson's worst start since he joined the rotation in late August. His control has begun to waver -- he threw only 58 of 99 pitches for strikes Saturday, and he's issued 11 free passes over his last 14.2 innings -- but Atlanta will live with the 22-year-old's growing pains as the team pushes to clinch the NL East title. Anderson will take a 2.36 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 11.8 K/9 into his final outing of the regular season, Thursday at home against the Marlins.
