Jake Marisnick touched him for a two-run shot in the second inning, and Evan Gattis added a solo bomb in the sixth.

Anderson (7-8, 3.52 ERA) pretty much matched the line from his previous start, when he allowed three runs in six innings on Saturday. He is 2-3 with a 4.69 ERA over his last six starts, though that includes a seven-run meltdown against the Nationals back on August 10.

"I keep telling people that I think I'm a good pitcher and I know I'm a good pitcher. If I can just go out there and stay healthy ... it's kind of proven me right to this point."

Anderson even helped himself at the plate, driving in a run with a single in the fourth inning.

"Brett had a huge outing for us after the last couple of games in Chicago, where we taxed the 'pen pretty good," manager Don Mattingly said. "He pitches down and has a breaking ball that has bite. He can move the ball to both sides of the plate with the fastball, and it's always moving down."

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
