Anderson Plays Big Role in Kansas City Win
Kansas City rode a good effort from starter Willie Anderson to beat the Toronto Blue Jays at Kauffman Stadium. The final score was 4-2. After today's action, Kansas City sits at 27-21, while Toronto falls to 26-24.

Anderson, who has sometimes raised the ire of coaches and teammates with his famously lackadaisical work ethic, turned in a spirited effort. The hurler struck out 5 in 8 innings and gave up no earned runs.

Anderson, who is tied for 9th in the AL in wins with 5, moves to 5-4 on the year with 72 strikeouts.

"Some of the guys in here work pretty hard, some of the guys just kind of fall out of bed and get it done. Whatever works I guess, we won this one," Anderson told the Kansas City Observer.
