Dodgers Name Game 4 Starter; Held a 1.88 ERA in 4 Starts Against Padres This Season

In a potentially series-clinching game, the Dave Roberts and the Los Angeles Dodgers turn to a veteran starter who's enjoyed an unprecedentedly remarkable season.

It will be Tyler Anderson on the mound for the Dodgers in Game 4 on Saturday. 

Tony Gonsolin will take the ball in Game 3 on Friday, backed by a fully rested bullpen. Anderson doesn't have any pitch count limitations like Gonsolin, so it makes sense to move his start to Game 4. 

The thirty-two-year-old posted a phenomenal 2.57 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and 138/35 K/BB ratio over 178.2 innings of work this season. He registered an equally impressive 15-5 record. 

Anderson has made four starts against the Padres this season, holding their team to a .502 OPS and held a fantastic 1.88 ERA over 24 innings pitched. In addition, he posted an 0.88 WHIP and a 2-0 record against San Diego this season.
