Anderson Dazzles in Kansas City Win
The Kansas City Royals picked up a win at Great American Ball Park, knocking off the Cincinnati Reds, 5-1. Starting pitcher Willie Anderson was an essential part of his team's success. Kansas City goes to 58-99, Cincinnati to 103-55.

Anderson dominated for Kansas City, raising his record to 12-18. Cincinnati hitters had few good at-bats against the right-hander, who scattered 3 hits over 8 innings while striking out 4.

"For the most part, I made good pitches when I needed to," said Anderson.
