SP - ATL
Ian Anderson took a no-decision on Sunday when he allowed two runs on five hits with a pair of strikeouts and walks in the Braves 4-3 loss to the Braves in Game 7 of the NLCS.
Anderson wasn't at his sharpest in Game 7 and he gave up five hits, including a two-run single to Will Smith, and walked two over his three innings. It was a tight game from the get go and eventually the Dodgers prevailed and prevented Atlanta from reaching its first World Series since 1999. The rookie Anderson finished the postseason with a 2-0 record with a superb 0.96 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and a 24:10 K/BB ratio over 18 2/3 innings.
Ian Anderson took a no-decision on Tuesday when he allowed just one hit with five strikeouts and five walks across four innings in the Braves 8-7 win over the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS.
Anderson was pretty inefficient in this one, needing 85 pitches--48 strikes--to get through four innings. He still held the hard-hitting Dodgers to just one hit, though, and wiggled his way out of a couple of jams in the first and third innings, respectively. The rookie has been sensational for Atlanta this postseason, posting a 0.00 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and a 22:8 K/BB ratio over 15 2/3 innings. The Braves will look to go up 3-0 on Wednesday when Kyle Wright takes the mound.
Braves starter Ian Anderson tossed 5 2/3 scoreless innings in Wednesday's win over the Miami Marlins in Game 2 of the NLDS, allowing three hits and one walk while striking out eight.
Anderson has pitched nearly flawlessly since being promoted by the Braves this season, and he has now yet to allow a run through his first two postseason starts. His next start will come against either the Dodgers or the Padres if the Braves are able to advance to the NLCS.
Braves starter Ian Anderson struck out nine over six scoreless innings in Thursday's win over the Cincinnati Reds in Game 2 of the Wild Card Round. He allowed just two walks and two hits.
Anderson is an ace in the making in Atlanta, and after pitching to a 1.95 ERA and 41 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings in 2020, he might already be there. Thursday's win closed out the series over the Reds, and Anderson figures to slot in behind Max Friend in the postseason rotation in the next series, as well.
Braves starter Ian Anderson allowed three unearned runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Miami Marlins. The loss drops him to 3-2 on the season.
Anderson has looked the part of a top prospect through six starts this season, pitching to a 1.95 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 41 strikeouts over 32 1/3 innings. Despite dropping his final two decisions, Anderson struck out 14 batters while allowing just three earned runs over his final two starts (10 1/3 innings).
