ondary coach for
MILWAUKEE — Slowly but surely Tyler Ennis Jersey ,
Chase Anderson is reverting to the form that led to a breakout season a year ago.
The Milwaukee Brewers‘ right-hander returns to action Sunday afternoon to wrap up a three-game weekend series against the Philadelphia Phillies at
Miller Park fresh off his best outing since opening day.
In Tuesday’s 4-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs, he allowed a hit and walked two in seven innings. He struck out six and earned his first win since
“It was Chase getting back to what we saw last year,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said “You could tell right away that his fastball,
specifically, had a different gear tonight. Just by the hitters’ swings.”
Anderson went 12-4 with a 2.74 ERA in 25 starts a year ago, cementing his spot in Milwaukee’s rotation. Counsell tabbed the 30-year old to start the
season opener and Anderson (5-5, 4.13 ERA this season) answered the call with six shutout innings against the San Diego Padres.
He’s been up and down since, posting a 5.03 ERA over 11 starts — with a two-week stint on the disabled list for illness mixed in — between
Opening Day and Tuesday.
“My arm has been feeling pretty good overall,” Anderson said after facing Chicago. “Tonight, was the best I felt since I came back off the DL.
It’s good to know that it’s still in the tank.”
Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola also comes into the game after a strong showing his last time out. Nola allowed one run and struck out 10 over 6 2/3
innings in Philadelphia’s 5-4 victory over the Rockies on Tuesday.
Nola (8-2 http://www.ravensauthorizedshops.com/authentic-lamar-jackson-jersey , 2.27 ERA) is making a case to represent the Phillies in
the All-Star Game next month, going 7-1 with a 2.30 ERA over his last 10 starts. He’s held opponents to a run or fewer in six of those outings and
has allowed more than three runs once while striking out 75 batters with only 13 walks in 66 2/3 innings.
“He was exactly what we expected him to be, a guy who we can rely on,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “He’s a special kind of
The Phillies will attempt to win their second straight series after losing seven of eight games. Philadelphia evened the series with a 4-1 victory
despite striking out 14 times, stranding a season-high 15 runners and going 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position.
Rhys Hoskins hit a 431-foot homer and recorded three hits. He is 9-for-25 in seven games since returning from a broken jaw.
“Obviously, he set the tone with the big home run to left field,” Kapler said. “It is incredibly important for us to have him swinging the bat
like he is.”
Milwaukee has scored at least 12 runs in three of its five meetings with the Phillies this season but has yet to face Nola, who’s 3-0 with a 1.38
ERA in four career starts against the Brewers. Nola also is 1-0 mark with a 2.08 ERA in two starts in Milwaukee.
Anderson, meanwhile, hasn’t enjoyed the same success facing Philadelphia. In four career starts http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-will-hernandez-jersey , he’s 1-2 with a 5.85 ERA.
Sunday will mark Anderson’s first appearance against the Phillies since June 2, 2016 when he allowed a run on three hits while striking out six over
5 2/3 innings in a 4-1 Brewers victory at Citizens Bank Park.
A victory in the finale would give Milwaukee its third consecutive series victory and 15th of the season.
锟斤拷 The Cincinnati Bengals have hired Teryl Austin as defensive coordinator.
Austin spent the past four seasons as Detroit’s defensive coordinator, but his future was in doubt after the Lions fired coach Jim Caldwell last
“I am excited to add Teryl to our coaching staff as defensive coordinator,” Bengals coach Marvin Lewis said. “He is a bright and aggressive
coach with a wealth of experience. I look forward to working alongside him to take full advantage of our talented defensive personnel.”
The Bengals are bringing Lewis back after a 7-9 season. Cincinnati was 18th in the NFL in total defense this past season, nine spots higher than
Detroit, although the Lions had 32 takeaways to the Bengals’ 14.
Austin interviewed for Detroit’s coaching vacancy last week.
In 2014, the Lions became the ninth team in NFL history to finish the season allowing under 70 yards rushing per game. Detroit lost Ndamukong Suh off
that team and slipped defensively after that.
Austin was previously a secondary coach for the Baltimore Ravens and has also coached defensive backs for the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle
“It’s an honor to join the Bengals’ organization,” Austin said. “I look forward to leading an aggressive group of young men and helping them
and the team achieve our goals.”
