Dodgers right-hander Chris Anderson was named Texas League pitcher of the week after making history with Double-A Tulsa on Friday.

Anderson allowed four hits, including a solo home run, and one walk in a 2-1 win on Friday over the Arkansas Travelers (Angels). He struck out a season-high eight and threw 104 pitches, the third time in 17 starts this season he has topped the century mark.

Outside of the home run, no other runner reached second base against Anderson.

It was the first nine-inning complete game by a Tulsa Drillers pitcher at ONEOK Field, which opened in 2010.

Anderson, drafted by the Dodgers in the first round in 2013, is 9-5 with a 3.34 ERA this season for Double-A Tulsa, and the right-hander, who turns 23 on July 29, is 6-1 with a 2.52 ERA in his last 10 starts, with 48 strikeouts and 21 walks in 64⅓ innings.

Anderson was ranked the Dodgers' No. 9 prospect by Baseball America in their midseason prospect report.

This is the third time a Drillers pitcher has been named Texas League pitcher of the week this season, joining Julio Urias (April 9-19) and Jharel Cotton (June 29 - July 5)
