Pittsburgh Pirates vs Milwaukee Brewers
MILWAUKEE -- Chase Anderson will start on short rest for the first time in his career Wednesday when he takes the mound for the Milwaukee Brewers in the finale of a three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park.
Needing to replace Jimmy Nelson, who was originally slated to make the start but was instead lost for the season when he injured his right shoulder on Friday, Brewers manager Craig Counsell opted to go with Anderson, who threw only 67 pitches over five innings as Milwaukee routed the Cubs on Saturday.
"It was a spur-of-the-moment decision (to remove Anderson from his last start), with all the runs we scored," Counsell said about a game the Brewers won 15-2. "Just seeing how he responded, he feels good to go and is in position to do it."Read More...
