Tyler Anderson took the loss on Sunday against the Angels, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits over 1.2 innings with two walks.
After getting crushed for nine runs in two innings against this same Angels lineup just over a week ago, Anderson struggled again which started with a leadoff home run hit by Shohei Ohtani. He went on to allow another (unearned) run in the inning before allowing two more runs in the second inning where he was taken out with two outs.
Tyler Anderson took the no-decision on Tuesday against Oakland, allowing one run on two hits over four innings with two strikeouts.
With Anderson pitching on two days rest, the Mariners were hoping to just get two or three innings out of him so four innings was more than expected. He started off with a quick eight pitch first inning. He should have had the shutout if Tom Murphy didn't drop what would have been the third strike before Chad Pinder connected on a solo home run on the very next pitch. Outside of his previous start against the Angels, Anderson has been as consistent as gets at the end of the Mariners starting rotation.
Mariners manager Scott Servais announced after Tuesday's game that Tyler Anderson will start on short rest on Tuesday against Oakland.
This comes after Anderson allowed nine runs over two innings against the Angels on Tuesday where he only threw 54 pitches. It was expected that Yusei Kikuchi, who has posted a 7.82 ERA in four starts this month, would get his start skipped. Anderson will likely only go a few innings in what figures to be a bullpen day for the Mariners.
Tyler Anderson took the loss on Saturday against the Angels, allowing nine runs on nine hits over two innings with one walk.
It was brutal timing for Anderson's worst start since being acquired by the Mariners at the trade deadline. He allowed two runs in the first inning and it only got worse from there including two triples by Shohei Ohtani after the Mariners pitchers pitched around him on Friday.
Tyler Anderson earned the win on Monday against Oakland, allowing one run on four hits over seven innings with seven strikeouts and one walk.
It was the strongest start for Anderson since he was acquired by the Mariners at the trade deadline. It was a strong performance after not being able to reach the five inning mark in his two previous starts.
