The Anderson vs Anderson matchup we’ve all been waiting for come to Milwaukee tonight

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Both the Braves and Brewers are sending out a starting pitcher with the last name Anderson to pitch on Saturday, which is mildly amusing. What’s a bit weirder is that they each have two wins on the season and one has a 3.46 ERA (Ian for Atlanta), while the other has a 3.54 ERA (Brett for Milwaukee). Perhaps this can be the baseball version of the Josh fight.

In other news, the Braves will hope to have Ronald Acuna back in the lineup after he tweaked his ankle on Thursday and was out of the game on Friday. Atlanta is coming off a win without the early MVP frontrunner, but obviously it would be preferable to have a top 10 player in baseball playing rather than not.
