Ride Is Taxing for Anderson

<i> From Associated Press</i>

Left-hander Brian Anderson, the Arizona Diamondbacks’ most consistent pitcher, will miss his start tonight against the Chicago Cubs because of an injury he suffered on Saturday during a taxi ride he took to shop on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills.

Anderson (7-9) said he laid his pitching arm across the top of the back seat for the 20-minute cab ride and, when he dressed for the game at Dodger Stadium that night, felt some stiffness in his elbow. Anderson underwent an MRI exam on Monday and no serious damage was detected, Manager Buck Showalter said.

Montreal pitcher Carlos Perez was recuperating from a broken nose sustained in a traffic accident after the Expos returned home from a weekend series at Milwaukee.

Perez’s Mercedes apparently went out of control and struck a lamp post near Olympic Stadium when he tried to avoid another car, police said.
