Quick Quotes

"He's been throwing the ball good ever since he's been up here," D-backs manager Kirk Gibson said. "He gave us six strong innings. He mixed it up. LeMahieu sat on a breaking ball. But other than that, just flawless, didn't walk a lot of guys, kept the balls in play."

"I just tried to stick to my game plan and pitch off that," Anderson said. "If you try to pitch to the park, sometimes you're not very successful. If you stick to your game plan, usually you can be successful. Being in Reno last year was definitely a tester for me. That ball flies there. If you give up one run, you've got to limit it to that. Being able to limit the damage is huge."

"I 100 percent don't take any day [in the big leagues] for granted."
