Anderson (5-4) pitched seven strong innings Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, giving up only one run on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven.

Anderson picked up his third straight victory, and the Dodgers beat the Diamondbacks for the ninth time in the past 10 meetings. Over his past four starts, Anderson has allowed five runs in 28 innings and looks to be pitching later into games as of late. The 27-year-old will go for his fourth straight victory in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Phillies.

Anderson allowed just one run on five hits, walking one and striking out 10 over seven innings of a 7-1 win against Miami on Friday night.

Anderson (4-4, 3.13 ERA) has been on quite a roll lately, having allowed just four runs over his last three starts spanning 21 innings. He's pitching deeper into games - he pitched eight innings for the first time since May of 2011 two starts back and tossed 113 pitches in this one - and he's beginning to show some of the promise he displayed before injuries derailed his career. If he can stay healthy, he should solidify his position as a reliable starter in the middle of the Dodgers' rotation.

Anderson earned his third win of the season Sunday, allowing just one run through six innings against the Giants.

The 27-year-old needed just 85 pitches on the day, but was staked to a nine-run lead in the fifth inning and was lifted an inning later. Anderson has quietly become a quality piece of the Dodgers rotation and will carry a 3.29 ERA into his next scheduled start Friday against the Marlins.

Anderson took a no-decision despite allowing just two runs over eight innings Tuesday against the Rangers. He allowed eight hits and three walks and struck out four.

Anderson made it into the eighth inning for the first time two starts ago on June 6, and Tuesday night he completed it for the first time this season. The last time Anderson pitched eight innings was on May 26, 2011 as an Oakland Athletic. His ERA is down to 3.43.

Anderson allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out three in five innings against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

In his past eight starts prior to Wednesday, Anderson had not given up more than three runs in a start, lowering his ERA to 3.57. In his last four starts, he produced quality starts in each of them but only has a no-decision and three losses to show for it. Anderson is slated to take the mound again against the Rangers on Tuesday.

Anderson (2-4) pitched well Friday, allowing only two runs in 7.2 innings against the Cardinals, but took the loss. He struck out five, walked three and gave up four hits.

Anderson's delivered surprisingly credible work in the Dodgers' rotation this year, although his 1.36 WHIP doesn't quite match up with his strong 3.42 ERA. Nonetheless, he's now delivered three consecutive quality starts and will look to make it four Wednesday against Arizona.

Anderson, who was bothered by back tightness in Monday's outing against the Braves, indicated he experienced no issues with his back Tuesday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Though Anderson's back trouble undoubtedly put something of a scare in the Dodgers given his history of poor health, it looks like he'll be given the green light to make his next start Sunday against the Cardinals.

Anderson experienced back tightness during the fifth inning of his start against the Braves on Monday, but was able to stay in the game, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Anderson reportedly assured manager Don Mattingly and trainer Stan Conte that it was just a blip, going on to throw a couple practice pitches before completing a seven-inning, two-run outing. Considering that the oft-injured Anderson had back surgery last season, this should stick in fantasy owners' minds. Assuming the back doesn't act up on him, Anderson will go next against the Cardinals on Sunday.

Anderson submitted a sterling outing Monday against the Braves, scattering seven hits and two walks over seven frames. He struck out three batters and didn't factor into the decision in the Dodgers' 6-3 win.

After striking out 15 batters over his previous two turns, Anderson didn't generate a ton of misses Monday, but excelled in keeping the ball low in the zone. In so doing, he induced 13 groundballs, bumping up his rate to a superb 66.7 percent for the season. Anderson isn't a fantasy stud because of his typically modest strikeout rate and checkered history on the health front, but he's been a perfectly capable No. 3 starter this season for the Dodgers, who have sorely needed him with Hyun-Jin Ryu (shoulder) and Brandon McCarthy (elbow) out for the rest of 2015.

Anderson gave up six hits, three walks and three runs while striking out seven in 6.1 innings Wednesday against the Giants.

Anderson (2-2) received no run support to lose for the first time in five starts. The Dodgers have scored only two runs in 39 innings and were shut out for the second straight night, their first time being blanked in consecutive games since three in a row by the Giants in June 2012. Anderson will give it another go Monday against Atlanta, and hopefully the Dodgers will snap out of their offensive funk by then.
