Post-Game 29 Thread: Anderson, In Short


Brett Anderson got the win, and Mother Nature gets the save with its rain, shortening the game to 5.5 innings. The Dodgers' two runs in the first inning, on an Adrian Gonzalez double to right and a Yasmani Grandal sacrifice fly, held up, but it wasn't easy: the Rockies stranded runners in each of their five innings, saving the Dodgers from major damage thanks to two double plays.

Oh sure, we can point to the Dodgers leaving the bases loaded with one out in the top of the sixth, an inning that was never finished due to rain. But I'll take the victory (and the four-game lead in the NL West) instead.
