In their final road game of the season, the Los Angeles Dodgers received a gem from Brett Anderson as he made a final case to be part of the postseason rotation. While Anderson largely cruised through the game, it wasn’t without needing to overcome a strange series of events.
Thursday’s afternoon affair provided a backdrop for the filming of a “Fuller House” episode. Actress Jodie Sweetin sang “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” between the seventh inning, and the crowd was prompted to boo for filming purposes.
Because the episode was filmed during parts of the game, it led to minor delays throughout. Some of the Dodgers who grew up watching the beloved show gently tolerated the filming while others were taken aback.
According to ESPN’s Mark Saxon, Anderson was one of the players who was a little frustrated:
I didn’t know what the hell that was. That was terrible,” Anderson said. “I had to lock it back in. I thought it was just her being awful at singing. I had to collect myself there for a second. I’m not used to that too much when you’re pitching and they’re filming a show and she’s yelling at fans and players and stuff.”
Anderson got through the seventh inning unscathed, but allowed one run in the eighth and was charged for a second after giving way to Chris Hatcher. Anderson nonetheless improved to 10-9 on the season and triggered multiple bonus clauses in his contract.
The upcoming Netflix series is a sequel to popular 90s sitcom “Full House,” which starred actors such as Bob Saget, John Stamos and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olson.
