Brewers' Anderson strikes out nine in five innings vs. Cardinals

Chase Anderson struck out nine batters and allowed just one run in five innings but did not earn a decision as his team lost to the Cardinals on Saturday. He yielded only two hits but walked four batters and burned 100 pitches in just five frames and was unable to pitch deep into the game. It came back to haunt as Jeremy Jeffress let in two runs in the next frame to take the loss. The one run Anderson allowed came on a solo home run by Yadier Molina in the second inning. His record holds at 5-6 with a middling 4.37 ERA in 15 starts.

Reds' Romano fortunate to get no decision on Sunday

Sal Romano allowed five runs over five innings with six strikeouts in a no-decision against the Cubs on Sunday. Romano was strong through the first four innings, but things fell apart on the right-hander in the fifth, as he allowed all five runs in that frame. There’s been more good than bad for Romano as of late, but he still owns a 5.40 ERA, and is always a risky play in fantasy. We’ll see him back on the mound when the Reds and Romano take on the Brewers on Friday.
