Wednesday by Comparison: Anderson's Quality Doesn't Compute

Don't tell Tyler Anderson about the value of quality starts.

He is looking for wins -- for the Rockies -- on the days he pitches.

Anderson turned in his 13th quality start of the season on Tuesday night. He, however, had a no-decision, and the Rockies lost, 8-2, to the Astros in 10 innings.

Anderson is 5-1 with a 2.01 ERA in those 13 quality starts. The Rockies, however, are 7-6 in Anderson's quality starts this season. That's no knock on him. He has done his job -- working at least six innings and giving up three or fewer runs. But the reward of victory is missing in six of those 13 games.

Even with the loss on Tuesday night to the Astros, the Rockies have equaled the third-best record in franchise history after 100 games. The Rockies have advanced to the postseason in the three previous seasons.
