|MILWAUKEE — Slowly but surely Josh Allen Color Rush Jersey , Chase Anderson is reverting to the form that led to a breakout season a year ago.
The Milwaukee Brewers‘ right-hander returns to action Sunday afternoon to wrap up a three-game weekend series against the Philadelphia Phillies at Miller Park fresh off his best outing since opening day.
In Tuesday’s 4-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs, he allowed a hit and walked two in seven innings. He struck out six and earned his first win since May 21.
“It was Chase getting back to what we saw last year,” Brewers manager Craig Counsell said “You could tell right away that his fastball, specifically, had a different gear tonight. Just by the hitters’ swings.”
Anderson went 12-4 with a 2.74 ERA in 25 starts a year ago, cementing his spot in Milwaukee’s rotation. Counsell tabbed the 30-year old to start the season opener and Anderson (5-5, 4.13 ERA this season) answered the call with six shutout innings against the San Diego Padres.
He’s been up and down since, posting a 5.03 ERA over 11 starts — with a two-week stint on the disabled list for illness mixed in — between Opening Day and Tuesday.
“My arm has been feeling pretty good overall,” Anderson said after facing Chicago. “Tonight, was the best I felt since I came back off the DL. It’s good to know that it’s still in the tank.”
Phillies right-hander Aaron Nola also comes into the game after a strong showing his last time out. Nola allowed one run and struck out 10 over 6 2/3 innings in Philadelphia’s 5-4 victory over the Rockies on Tuesday.
Nola (8-2 Pat Valaika Colorado Rockies Jersey , 2.27 ERA) is making a case to represent the Phillies in the All-Star Game next month, going 7-1 with a 2.30 ERA over his last 10 starts. He’s held opponents to a run or fewer in six of those outings and has allowed more than three runs once while striking out 75 batters with only 13 walks in 66 2/3 innings.
“He was exactly what we expected him to be, a guy who we can rely on,” Phillies manager Gabe Kapler said. “He’s a special kind of competitor.”
The Phillies will attempt to win their second straight series after losing seven of eight games. Philadelphia evened the series with a 4-1 victory despite striking out 14 times, stranding a season-high 15 runners and going 2-for-14 with runners in scoring position.
Rhys Hoskins hit a 431-foot homer and recorded three hits. He is 9-for-25 in seven games since returning from a broken jaw.
“Obviously, he set the tone with the big home run to left field,” Kapler said. “It is incredibly important for us to have him swinging the bat like he is.”
Milwaukee has scored at least 12 runs in three of its five meetings with the Phillies this season but has yet to face Nola, who’s 3-0 with a 1.38 ERA in four career starts against the Brewers. Nola also is 1-0 mark with a 2.08 ERA in two starts in Milwaukee.
Anderson, meanwhile, hasn’t enjoyed the same success facing Philadelphia. In four career starts http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-saquon-barkley-jersey , he’s 1-2 with a 5.85 ERA.
Sunday will mark Anderson’s first appearance against the Phillies since June 2, 2016 when he allowed a run on three hits while striking out six over 5 2/3 innings in a 4-1 Brewers victory at Citizens Bank Park.
A victory in the finale would give Milwaukee its third consecutive series victory and 15th of the season.
Michael Rubin poses for pictures and shares bro hugs from his courtside seat before Philadelphia 76ers playoff games with a hodgepodge of celebrities that could be straight out of a ”Dancing With The Stars” casting call.
Hey, there’s Kevin Hart ! Look, it’s Questlove! Wait, is that really Dr. Oz ?
But there’s one VIP that the 45-year old billionaire co-owner of the Sixers really wants to introduce.
”Hey, have you met Meek?” Rubin asks.
Meek Mill is all smiles as he says life is all good in the days since he was released from prison while the Philly-born rapper appeals decade-old gun and drug convictions.
Mill had a string of high-profile names – including Hart , rapper Jay-Z and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft – support him during a five-month campaign to be freed on bail from prison for probation violations. But Mill’s biggest advocate, one of his closest friends and the e-commerce entrepreneur who arranged for a helicopter to take Mill from prison to a Sixers’ playoff game is Rubin, majority owner and CEO of Kynetic, the holding company for sportswear giant Fanatics.
His biggest behind-the-scenes role of late was his drive to free Mill from potentially years behind bars.
”He’s been showing up for me and standing up for me like a real friend would do Cheap Sam Darnold Jersey ,” Mill told The Associated Press. ”It’s meant a lot for our friendship and brought us closer together. I just think he’s a good-hearted person being that he’s somebody worth billions of dollars and still uses his resources to stand up for people who don’t have the money to be able to fight the errors of the criminal justice system.”
Forbes lists Rubin’s net worth at $3 billion . TMZ counts his value in page views – yes, that’s Rubin in the photo partying at a birthday bash for 76ers All-Star center Joel Embiid .
But Rubin says he’ll find personal worth in the months ahead teaming with Mill to tackle thorny criminal justice issues. It could help that Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf is a frequent front-row companion of Rubin and Mill’s during Philly’s run through the postseason. The trio recently appeared together to ask state lawmakers for criminal justice changes .
”This was one of my closest friends and I watched something terrible happen to him,” Rubin said at his Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, office. ”It started with, how do we fix the situation with him? I said, `My God, this is horrific.’ What it actually showed me was, there are much bigger problems with the criminal justice system which I had no understanding of. We’re not going to let what happened to Meek Mill happen to everyday Meek Mills.”
Rubin wasn’t expecting a personal awakening when he met Mill at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game in New York.
Rubin, raised in an upper middle-class Philly suburb Authentic Lamar Jackson Jersey , was simply a businessman who had been making deals since he was a kid. He owned a ski shop as a teen, dropped out of Villanova after just six weeks and sold his first sports equipment business to eBay in 2011 for $2.4 billion. He runs Fanatics, fashion site Rue La La and shipping site Shop Runner through Kynetic. And in 2011, he joined an ownership group led by Joshua Harris and David Blitzer that would buy the 76ers and later the NHL’s New Jersey Devils.
Harris and Blitzer – who have since formed Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment as they expand their sports portfolio – had served as the primary faces of the sports teams since their purchases. But over the last two years as his wealth seemed to match his ambition, Rubin has been at the forefront of the Sixers’ rise from the 10-win early Process days into one of the best young teams in the NBA. The seats that flank Rubin – Mill and fellow rapper Lil Uzi Vert had the distinction at Game 4 against the Celtics on Monday – have become must-see for fans to catch celeb sightings.
”It’s surreal to have this many people support me at one time,” Mill said. ”The feeling is unexplainable.”
The man who pushed Mill’s cause – and helped keep the ”Dreams and Nightmares” performer’s spirits high in prison with visits from a few 76ers – is also getting his time in the spotlight.
”He freed Meek! He freed Meek!” one man yelled, trying to get Rubin’s attention.
It’s not just rappers and actors – or even Game 4 guest, CNBC news anchor Joe Kernen – that flock to Rubin. Rubin and Embiid have become tight and it was the owner who arranged Embiid’s birthday party in Miami and snagged a suite for the organization to attend a World Series game in Houston at the same time the Sixers were in town.
”I’m not involved in the basketball decisions,” Rubin said. ”I think it’s obvious from the outside in that I’ve got great relations with them. I’m a very player-oriented owner. I think I’m highly relatable to these guys. I’m in the business. There are things I can have a big influence in with them.”
Rubin, divorced with a 12-year-old daughter http://www.texansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-keke-coutee-jersey , has an off-the-cuff Mark Cuban vibe and wears the same blue button-down, jeans and black sneaks to Game 4 that he did hours earlier inside an office filled with photos of other celebs and his appearance on ”Undercover Boss .” He even hit up baseball’s All-Star Game last year with Kraft and Embiid .
”By the way, Joel and Robert love each other. Meek and Robert love each other,” Rubin said. ”I love to be able to foster those relationships. People always say to me how lucky Meek is to have m.
