Dodgers left-hander Brett Anderson grounds Reds while offense takes flight

first_imgThe game time temperature was 90 degrees on what had been a scorching day by Los Angeles standards.That is usually a sign that the ball is going to fly out of Dodger Stadium at an alarming rate.But when the first two batters of the game hit harmless grounders, it was a harbinger of things to come for Dodgers left-hander Brett Anderson, the major-league’s top ground-ball pitcher this season.Anderson, for the most part, stuck to the ground and the Dodgers took to the air with four massive homers, part of a 12-hit barrage in an 8-3 victory Saturday night over the Cincinnati Reds. L.A. maintained a 2 1/2-game lead over the San Francisco Giants in the National League West. Of his 18 outs Saturday, Anderson recorded 14 via ground balls, three on strikeouts and just one flyout.Yimi Garcia struck out one in two scoreless innings of relief, and Chris Hatcher made his first appearance since going on the disabled list with a left oblique strain and struck out one in a perfect ninth inning.“I thought (Anderson) was good. Obviously he gives up the homer. He went 0-2 with (Joey) Votto — he’s a tough out for us — and then the homer to Frazier. But from that point, he kind of recovered. He kept battling and I thought he was solid. That’s what he’s been doing for us. He gave us a chance.”VIDEO: Watch Don Mattingly’s postgame interviewThe crowd of 46,807 delighted in the Dodgers’ power surge.Yasiel Puig led off the second inning with a solo blast to right-center field — his 10th — to close the Dodgers within 2-1. It was his sixth homer since the All-Star break. He later added just his second stolen base of the season.Later in the inning, the sizzling Kike Hernandez followed a tying RBI single by Jimmy Rollins with a massive three-run homer halfway up the left-field pavilion for a 5-2 lead. It was his sixth homer, and he nearly hit his seventh with a drive to the right-field wall in the eighth.Justin Turner led off the third inning with an opposite-field drive just inside the right-field foul pole for a 7-3 lead. It was his 14th homer of the season.For good measure, Adrian Gonzalez tacked on his team-leading 24th homer in the fourth inning for an 8-3 lead.It is the most homers the Dodgers have hit in a game since Sept. 9, 2013, when they hit six against the Arizona Diamondbacks, including three by Juan Uribe.“It was good. We needed runs early to get back on the board, and Kike’s homer put us back in the driver’s seat,” Gonzalez said. “It was about everyone hitting and everyone contributing.”VIDEO: Watch Adrian Gonzalez’s postgame interviewHernandez and Turner continued their sizzling stretches.Hernandez is hitting .432 (16 for 37) with three homers and eight RBIs in his last 14 games since July 24, filling in admirably for the injured Howie Kendrick (hamstring) at second base.“I like to play. I don’t care where I play, as long as I am in the lineup,” Hernandez said. “I don’t like it (being classified as a utility player). I’m 23, and I believe I have a long career ahead of me. But being a utility guy got me to the big leagues. It’s why I am here.”VIDEO: Watch Kike Hernandez’s postgame interviewTurner is 4 for 10 since coming off the disabled list with a skin infection on his leg, and is hitting .462 (18 for 39) with four doubles and four homers since July 18.The suddenly resurgent Rollins finished with two hits. Crawford added two hits and two walks and is hitting .353 (12 for 34) with two doubles, a homer and seven RBIs since returning from the disabled list. Joc Pederson added an RBI groundout, and even Anderson chipped in with two effective sacrifice bunts.Reds rookie left-hander David Holmberg took the brunt of the beatdown, charged with seven runs on five hits in two innings. He walked four and gave up three homers. Anderson rebounded from his worst outing of the season Monday against the Washington Nationals with a quality start, allowing three runs in six innings to even his record at 7-7.“It was hot, the ball was flying, but I was able to make some pitches when I had to and was able to get the quality start,” Anderson said. “And the offense was tremendous today. I was getting a bunch of ground balls and was pitching like I have been.”VIDEO: Watch Brett Anderson’s postgame interviewOn a day susceptible to the long ball, Anderson found a way to ground the Reds’ offense, aside from a two-run homer to Todd Frazier in the first inning.It is more of what Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has come to expect from the left-hander, who is enjoying his first full healthy season since 2009.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
