SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) Brett Anderson pitched three positive innings in his first start against his former team on Saturday, helping the Colorado Rockies to a 5-4 victory over the Oakland Athletics.
The left-hander allowed one run on three hits and struck out one.
Anderson was Oakland's opening-day starter a year ago. But he had a 6.21 ERA in April, spent four months on the disabled list with a foot injury and ended the season in the bullpen. He was traded in December.
