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.
Quality Doesn't Necessarily Count
|Team: 7-6||ERA: 2.01||5||1||85||20||19|
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.
