Anderson is trying to collect his second quality start of the season in this game.
Anderson will try to prolong a six-game streak of going five or more innings (he’s averaging 5.0 innings per outing).
It will be a low scoring game, 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 something like that. When you have two good pitchers that can go 5 + innings it's a wide open game.
