Tyler Anderson pitched the game of his life last week. With the Dodgers facing off against the Angels, Anderson came so close to pitching a no-hitter. That was spoiled in the 9th inning when Shohei Ohtani laced a triple down the rightfield line to break it up.
But as it turns out, it seems like it wouldn’t have mattered anyway. It’s not often that there is a scoring change after a game, especially this late. But the game between the Dodgers and Angels had an official change issued this week.
The play in question came on a ball that was ruled an error on Tyler Anderson Jared Walsh hit a little bleeder down the first base line which was going to be a tough play for Anderson in the 7th inning. The Dodgers pitcher fired the ball into the ground past Freddie Freeman and was charged with the error. That ball has now been ruled a hit.
Also tonight, MLB has made an official scoring change to the #Angels June 15 game at Dodger Stadium.

It’s really unfortunate given that Dave Roberts let Anderson go after the no-no, risking his health in the process. He finished 123 pitches in that game while trying to go for history, by far the most of his career. The Dodgers will see this afternoon if that plays any role in his next start.
It’s just a very odd change, and one that rarely happens in Major League Baseball. Imagine the outrage from Dodgers fans if Anderson had completed the no-hitter only to have it taken away the following week.
