Brett Anderson picked up his first win in a month on Thursday, but the Los Angeles Dodgers lefty was disgruntled after his start about something that had nothing to do with his performance.
Making his longest outing since June 16, Anderson threw 7 2/3 innings in the Dodgers' 3-2 win over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday, picking up his 10th win of the season.
However, Anderson's extended outing meant he was in the game for the seventh-inning stretch, when some unusual activity occurred at AT&T Park on Thursday.
As Anderson warmed up for his seventh inning of work, a scene from the upcoming "Full House" spinoff "Fuller House" was filmed, and the lefty didn't appreciate his workplace being used as a sound stage.
Actress Jodie Sweetin, who plays Stephanie Tanner on the show, interacted with Giants outfielder Hunter Pence before giving her rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame."
Anderson didn't appreciate the distraction.
"I didn't know what the hell that was," Anderson told the Los Angeles Times. "That was terrible. I didn't know if that was serious or what was happening. I thought it was just her being awful at singing. I had to collect myself there for a second."
When asked if he was a fan of "Full House," the 27-year-old lefty replied, "I was, but I never watched it while I was pitching."
Anderson's Dodgers teammate Andre Ethier seemed to thoroughly enjoy having the "Fuller House" crew at AT&T Park, and spent some time with the cast after the game.
While Anderson may have been displeased with the interruption in his outing, the oft-injured starter has to be content to have finished his longest season in MLB with 31 starts and to have likely secured a spot in the Dodgers' postseason rotation as well.
The Giants, on the other hand, have been plagued by injuries this season, which makes their adaptation of "Full House's" beloved intro, entitled "Full Clubhouse," quite ironic in retrospect.
